MN Reads: "Northernmost" by Peter Geye

Oct 8, 2020

Author Peter Geye talks about his most recent novel, Northernmost, the challenges of writing about Scandinavians ("I'm drawn to characters who live quiet, introspective lives), the surprising ease of creating authentic voices for characters from the 1890s ("Go to Ingebretson's Market on Lake Street before Christmas and look at how the husbands and wives talk to each other") and the unexpected bonus - in the form of another new novel - born of a little more time at home.
