Days in the history of silence / Merethe Lindstrøm ; translated from the Norwegian by Anne Bruce.

Publication | Library Call Number: PT8951.22.I55 D3413 2012

A story that reveals the devastating effects of mistaking silence for peace and feeling shame for inevitable circumstances. Eva and Simon have spent most of their adult lives together. He is a physician and she is a teacher, and they have three grown daughters and a comfortable home. Yet what binds them together isn't only affection and solidarity but also the painful facts of their respective histories, which they keep hidden even from their own children. But after the abrupt dismissal of their housekeeper and Simon's increasing withdrawal into himself, the past can no longer be repressed.
