“A hauntingly lyrical meditation to the contingencies of history” – Wall Street Journal

“[An] impressive mix of history, reportage and travel memoir” – Washington Post

The Border is a book about Russia and Russian history without its author ever entering Russia itself; a book about being the neighbour of that mighty, expanding empire throughout history. It is a chronicle of the colourful, exciting, tragic and often unbelievable histories of these bordering nations, their cultures, their people, their landscapes.

Through her last three documentary books – one about terrorism in Beslan, one about the 2011 terror attacks in Norway and one about post-Soviet Central Asia – social anthropologist Erika Fatland has established herself as a sharp observer and an outstanding interviewer at the forefront of Nordic non-fiction.
