The prophets of eternal fjord by Kim Leine( Book )

21 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and Romanian and held by 759 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The award-winning, internationally best-selling saga of a Greenlandic community torn apart by the forces of colonialism--appearing in English at last. Idealistic, misguided Morten Falck is a newly ordained priest sailing to Greenland in 1787 to convert the Inuit to the Danish church. A rugged outpost battered by unremittingly harsh winters, Sukkertoppen is simmering with the threat of dissent; natives from neighboring villages have unified to reject Danish rule and establish their own settlement atop Eternal Fjord. As Falck becomes involved with those in his care--his ambitious catechist, a lonely trader's wife, and a fatalistic widow he comes to love--his faith and reputation are compromised. The internationally acclaimed novelist Kim Leine charts the tragic events that connect these seemingly disparate lives, while illuminating the brutal and tender impulses of those seeking redemption and the shifting line between religion and mysticism. In the tradition of We, the Drowned, The Prophets of Eternal Fjord is rich in earthy detail and Dickensian pathos, a visceral panorama of a fragile colony caught in the throes of history. --

The prophets of eternal fjord by Kim Leine( )

12 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The award-winning, internationally bestselling saga of a Greenlandic community torn apart by the forces of colonialism and the one priest whose wavering guidance will determine its fateIdealistic, foolhardy Morten Falck is a newly ordained priest sailing to Greenland in 1787 to convert the Inuit to the Danish church. He's rejected the prospect of a sleepy posting in a local parish and instead departs for the forsaken Sukkertoppen colony, where he will endeavor to convert the locals. A town battered by unremittingly harsh winters and simmering with the threat of dissent, it is a far cry from the parish he envisioned; natives from neighboring villages have unified to reject colonial rule and establish their own settlement atop Eternal Fjord. A bumbling and at times terrifically destructive mix of Shakespeare's Falstaff and Nathaniel Hawthorne's Arthur Dimmesdale, he's woefully ill prepared to confront this new sect. Torn between his instinctive compassion for the rebel congregation perched atop Eternal Fjord and his duty to the church, Falck is forced to decide where he belongs. His exploits in this brutal backwater include an accidental explosion after a night curled around a keg, a botched surgery, a love affair with a solitary and fatalistic widow, and an apprenticeship with an eager young scholar that ends in tragedy.Based on authentic events in the 1780s and 90s, Prophets of Eternal Fjord moves from the quiet rooms of the Copenhagen bourgeoisie to the stark, hardscrabble village of the Fjord where Falck finds himself--surprisingly--at home. In gritty detail, Kim Leine reveals the corrosive effects of colonial rule

I 1918 reiser tvillingene Kaj og Ib Gottlieb til Finland for å delta som frivillige i borgerkrigen som nettopp har brutt ut. Etter dette møtet med krigen følger vi dem i den lange fredstiden, gjennom 20- og 30-årenes økende nazifisering og uroligheter i Danmark og Tyskland, med avstikkere til Midtøsten og USA. Og plutselig er de tilbake i krigen, i motstandskamp, der de balanserer på en knivsegg med katt og mus-lek med Gestapo i København. Men hvor er avgrunnen; er den i krigen eller i freden eller et annet sted - et tredje sted? Avgrunnen er en historie om krig og fred, kjærlighet og driftenes veier og omveier, om å være menneske i det onde 20. århundre - og til enhver tid. Kim Leine mottok Nordisk råds litteraturpris for Profetene i Evighetsfjorden (2012)
