Nathaniel Ian Miller

Join us on Zoom on Thursday, March 3 at 7 PM for a conversation with Nathaniel Ian Miller around his novel, The Memoirs of Stockholm Sven. He will be in conversation with Caitlin Horrocks. She is the author of the story collection This Is Not Your City and the novel The Vexations.


About the Book

The “captivating’’ and “powerful’’ story (Publishers Weekly, starred review) of one man who banishes himself to a solitary life in the Arctic Circle, and is saved by good friends, a loyal dog, and a surprise visit that changes everything, in a novel that is both “ceaselessly brilliant’’ (Adam Johnson, Pulitzer Prize–winning author of The Orphan Master’s Son) and “pure delight’’ (Christina Baker Kline, #1 bestselling author of Orphan Train)

In 1916, Sven Ormson leaves a restless life in Stockholm to seek adventure in Svalbard, an Arctic archipelago where darkness reigns four months of the year and he might witness the splendor of the Northern Lights one night and be attacked by a polar bear the next. But his time as a miner ends when an avalanche nearly kills him, leaving him disfigured, and Sven flees even further, to an uninhabited fjord. There, with the company of a loyal dog, he builds a hut and lives alone, testing himself against the elements.
