The Road is expected to be a big hit at the movie theaters this holiday season; a story that is about a father and son relationship. There are many writers that explore this family dynamic but few have done it well like Potok’s The Chosen or Hemingway’s “Up in Michigan”. Per Petterson’s Out Stealing Horses (2003) examines this father and son relationship during and after WWII years in Finland and the woods that border Sweden. A book rich in natural description and stoic language, it overcomes its weaknesses of plot structure and characterization to reveal an important literary and metaphorical look at our haunting pasts and the relationships we regain in reconnecting with them.
