Zum Buch

Linda has an idiosyncratic home life: her parents live in abandoned commune cabins in northern Minnesota and are hanging on to the last vestiges of a faded counter-culture world. The kids at school call her 'Freak', or 'Commie'. She is an outsider in all things. Her understanding of the world comes from her observations at school, where her teacher is accused of possessing child pornography, and from watching the seemingly ordinary life of a family she babysits for. Yet while the accusation against the teacher is perhaps more innocent than it seemed at first, the ordinary family turns out to be more complicated. As Linda insinuates her way into the family's orbit, she realises they are hiding something. If she tells the truth, she will lose the normal family life she is beginning to enjoy with them; and if she doesn't, a life is at stake. Superbly-paced and beautifully written, HISTORY OF WOLVES is an extraordinary debut novel about the lengths a person will go to find the life they desire...

Emily Fridlunds Debüt »History of Wolves« steht auf der Shortlist des Booker Prize 2017
von Andrea O´Brien

... Dieser Roman ist kein klassischer Thriller, ja nicht mal ein Krimi, aber er behandelt eine ganze Reihe Verbrechen, von der Pädophilie bis zum Kindsmord (damit verrate ich nicht zu viel, denn das wird gleich auf der ersten Seite klar) und versucht, sich unter dem
Aspekt der »Psychologie des Bösen« an sie anzunähern. ...
