Summary
An American woman wakes up alone in a tent in the Norwegian mountains. Outside a storm rages and the fog is dense. Her phone is dead. She has no map, no compass, and no food. How she ended up there, and the tragic details of her life, emerge over the course of this novel. We discover that Jane is a novelist with a bad case of writer's block -- she had come to Norway to seek out distant relatives and family history, but when her trip went awry, she tethered herself to a zoologist she met by chance on the plane, joining him on a trek to see the musk oxen of the Dovrefjell mountain range. At once elegant and gripping, The Gradual Disappearance of Jane Ashland moves seamlessly between Jane's life in America and the extraordinary landscape of the Norwegian mountains. As we gradually unpack the emotional debris of her past -- troubled Midwestern parents, a loving courtship in New York, and a cruel, sudden tragedy that rearranged everything -- we begin to understand what led her to this lonely landscape
