Narrada en primera persona por Trond Sender, un hombre de sesenta y siete años que vive aisaldo en una casa de un bosque situado en la frontera entre Noruega y Suecia, el protagonista de Salir a robar caballos rememora su vida en el verano de 1948, cuando tenía quince años, hacía tres que los alemanes habían abandonado el país, y descubrió la verdad sobre las relaciones adúlteras entre su padre y la madre de su mejor amigo, y sobre el pasado político de su padre, antiguo miembro de la resistencia contra los nazis. Enfrentado al descubrimiento del erotismo, de la muerte y de la falsa armonía familiar, Trond se convierte, en un verano, en un hombre adulto.

Out Stealing Horses has been embraced across the world as a classic, a novel of universal relevance and power. Panoramic and gripping, it tells the story of Trond Sander, a sixty-seven-year-old man who has moved from the city to a remote, riverside isolated cabin, in a forest on the border between Norway and Sweden, the hero of the book remembers his life in the summer of 1948 when he was fifteen, three years after the Germans had left the country. He discovered the truth about adulterous relations between his father and his best friend's mother, and also about his father's political past, a former member of the resistance against the Nazis. Faced with the discovery of eroticism, death and false family harmony, Trond becomes, in a summer, an adult male. Only to have all the turbulence, grief, and overwhelming beauty of his youth come back to him one night while he's out on a walk. From the moment Trond sees a strange figure coming out of the dark behind his home, the reader is immersed in a decades-deep story of searching and loss, and in the precise, irresistible prose of a newly crowned master of fiction.
