The Ice Palace
Considered a classic of Norwegian literature, this was first published in 1963. A slim novel which Doris Lessing described as simple, subtle, strong, unique, unforgettable, extraordinary. What will we make of it?

Everyone took something different away from this book about grief, entrapment, isolation, community, friendship, coming of age, all set in the icy landscape of Norway. Deceptively simple, slim novel about a moment in time. It prompted a great discussion.
