Jan Kjaerstad

I am in the second book of my March trilogy read. This month it is the Jonas Wergeland Trilogy by Jan Kjaerstad from Norway. All three books are translated by Barbara Haveland. The first, The Seducer, was published by Overlook Press. The next two, The Conqueror and The Discoverer, were published by Open Letter, one of my favourite publishers for translated works. It has been an interesting series so far, with an exploration into the stories that make up a life and the connections between those stories: which ones are important and lead to later life outcomes. Back to reading.
