Explore Sheldon Horowitz, Miller Le and more!

Norwegian by Night By Derek B. Miller - He will not admit it to Rhea and Lars - never, of course not - but Sheldon can't help but wonder what it is he's doing here... Eighty-two years old, and recently widowed, Sheldon Horowitz has grudgingly moved to Oslo, with his grand-daughter and her Norwegian husband. An ex-Marine, he talks often to the ghosts of his past - the friends he lost in the Pacific and the son who followed him into the US Army, and to his death in Vietnam.

Sheldon Horowitz, judío neoyorquino de ochenta y dos años, se va a vivir con su nieta y su marido a Oslo después de fallecer su mujer. Obsesionado con la muerte de su hijo en la guerra de Vietnam, su carácter refunfuñón y su negativa a aceptar la debilidad de su memoria se unen a la natural desubicación en la que se encuetra. http://www.revistakritica.com/2013/09/resena-el-tipo-mas-raro-del-mundo-de.html#.Ul_2N9LwYiE…

“Sheldon Horowitz, an 80-year-old Korean War veteran, has a touch of dementia and goes to live with his daughter and son-in-law in Norway. One day what sounds like violence breaks out in the upstairs apartment and a young boy's life appears to be at risk. Sheldon becomes the boy's protector/abductor, fleeing in disguise through the countryside. A wild, compelling, politically complex, and sometimes funny tale that is a very rich read.” Richard Howorth, Square Books, Oxford, MS
