The Prophets of Eternal Fjord by Kim Leine

If you’re feeling ambitious, the English edition of this award-winning, internationally best-selling saga is out today. It’s the story of a late 18th-century Greenlandic community being torn apart by colonialism, and the priest who will attempt to save them. Soon he will be torn between his faith and his conscience. I don’t even think I can give it a description to do it justice, so I’m just going to say this: It’s big, it’s strange, it’s epic, and it’s totally rewarding for those who are daring enough to brave it.
