A journey to find Norway’s supposed bliss makes for a comic travelogue that asks, seriously, what makes Norwegians so damn happy—and does it translate?Eric Dregni will be at Ingebretsen's on Saturday, October 30 at 11:00 a.m. for a presentation and signing of his new book, For the Love of Cod: A Father and Son's Search for Norwegian Happiness. There will also be a lutefisk tasting during the event.

Eric Dregni takes his son on a return trip to Norway—the country where he was born fifteen years earlier—to investigate whether it really is the happiest country on Earth. From a passion for dugnad or community volunteerism to sakte or “slow,” a rejection of the mad pace of modernity, this idiosyncratic tour shows readers how, or whether, Norwegian happiness translates.

"Eric Dregni is the best kind of tour guide, bringing to life a country vis-à-vis its people, its (sometimes odd) customs, and its places. Brew some kaffe, get koselig (cozy), and settle in to do some armchair traveling to Norway. It’s a trip you’ll be lykkelig (happy) to take." —Lorna Landvik, author of Chronicles of a Radical Hag (with Recipes)

"Honest, funny, and down to earth, For the Love of Cod is an eye-opening look at how Norway discovered the key to real happiness." —Foreword Reviews

"An insider’s view of the Norwegian perspective on democratic socialism, Viking history, and long winter nights." —Ely Summer Times
