The Brothers by Asko Sahlberg

The Brothers

Asko Sahlberg

Strong and bitter as Finnish coffee; cold and beautiful like the tracery of ice over a frozen window, this story skates along the tight bonds of a farming family, and dances through the chasms that separate individuals' views of the world.

Extract

The house looks bigger than it really is, silhouetted against the forest, magnified by the dark. He knows its precise size, of course, and how much grief and disappointment it holds.
