Writer's Salon with Bart Sutter
Writer's Salon with Bart Sutter

Drury Lane Books | Grand Marais MN

In “Nordic Accordion” Sutter fulfills the covenant he made with his elders long ago—to dramatize, critique, and honor their struggles, their culture, their peculiar ways. The book explores the experience of Scandinavian immigrants, their ancestors, and their desendents.

At the heart of the book lies a cycle of dramatic monologues by old women about their half-pagan younger years as cowherders in the mountain pasture camps of Sweden. “This,” says David Ray of Sutter’s work, “is poetic storytelling at its best.”
