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 join Norske Torske Klubben at Mermaid Event Center on Saturday, November 27 at 11:00 a.m. for a reading and signing of his new book, For the Love of Cod: A Father and Son's Search for Norwegian Happiness

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.
