A riveting family saga immersed in the gritty, dark side of Swedish immigrant life in America in the early twentieth century

Gustaf and Anna Klar and their three children dream of starting over when they leave Sweden for New York, finally settling in a cluster of rough-hewn shacks in a deep, wooded ravine on the edge of St. Paul, Minnesota. This haunting story of a real place echoes the larger challenges of immigration in the twentieth century and today.

"Deeply researched and full of memorable moments, Swede Hollow is the powerful story of a family who makes the long journey to St. Paul from Sweden in the 1890s and struggles to create new lives for themselves in a hidden quarter of the city. Ola Larsmo writes with sympathy and grace, and his tale is a quiet epic, full of wonder and dreams and loss. Not to be missed."    — Larry Millett, author of Metropolitan Dreams
