This month we’re back reading Norwegian fiction (after our March book choice ‘Hunger’ by Knut Hamsun) with Maja Lunde’s ‘The History of Bees’. Lunde’s novel follows multiple timelines of bee-keepers, beautifully weaving together a dystopian narrative that draws attention to the powerful human relationship with bees and ecology.
‘Haunting and poignant … an important and wonderful book’ Dave Goulson, bestselling author of Bee Quest.
