Publisher's Summary

The latest Scandinavian publishing phenomenon is not a Stieg Larsson-like thriller; it's a book about chopping, stacking, and burning wood that has sold more than 200,000 copies in Norway and Sweden and has been a fixture on the best seller lists there for more than a year. Norwegian Wood provides useful advice on the rustic hows and whys of taking care of your heating needs, but it's also a thoughtful attempt to understand man's age-old predilection for stacking wood and passion for open fires. An intriguing window into the exoticism of Scandinavian culture, the book also features enough inherently interesting facts and anecdotes and inspired prose to make it universally appealing.
This US edition is a fully updated version of the Norwegian original.


What the Critics Say

"You don't need to have a wood-burning stove or fireplace to be captivated by the craft and lore surrounding a Stone Age method of creating heat." (The Boston Globe)

Excellent Book

Excellent book to unwind and "escape to the woods" without leaving the city. Just listening/reading it made me want to go out to the "bush" for the weekend. My only suggestion: it should have been read by an English-speaking Norwegian, not a Britain. That would have made it a TOTALLY authentic experience and a 10/10!
