In ONE OF US, journalist Åsne Seierstad delivers a vivid, thoroughly researched, and suspenseful account of the horrific events that transpired on July 22, 2011 in Norway — what led up to it, and the trial that followed.
One of Publishers Weekly‘s Most Anticipated Books of Spring 2015, the book is now available and receiving rave reviews from The New York Times and others:
“The nonfiction horror story told in ONE OF US moves slowly, inexorably and with tremendous authority. It’s said that exact detail is uniquely helpful when it comes to mending after terrible events. If it is true, as Stephen Jay Gould contended, that ‘nothing matches the holiness and fascination of accurate and intricate detail,’ then Ms. Seierstad has delivered a holy volume indeed.”
— Dwight Garner, The New York Times
“With a reporter’s passion for details and a novelist’s sense of story, Seierstad’s book is at once an unforgettable account of a national tragedy and a lively portrait of contemporary Norway.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review
“A powerful read that sociologists, historians, and political science students alike will find very informative.” — Library Journal
