About the Event
Our discussion this month is about A Frog in the Fjord—One Year in Norway by Lorelou Desjardins
The author, a French woman in her mid-20s from Provence, gets a job in Oslo. She is none too inspired by this Arctic country. Are Norwegian people as cold as their weather? So many things are weird about Norwegian people: they go skiing in the middle of the city, take their holidays in cabins with neither water nor electricity, light candles to make things koselig and have strange names like Odd and Bored. Learning Norwegian language, making local friends and dating are proving to be much harder than she thought. She has one year to figure out whether she wants to live there for good and make Norway her home. Described as one of the 5 most revealing books about Scandinavia, this is the ultimate guide to understanding Norway, its people and its language as well as Scandinavian culture in general.
