Summary
Jonathan Brand visits a group of Scandinavian islands in order to do his anthropology fieldwork, but in adjusting to the local culture, he finds himself caught up in the supposedly simple way of life
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Jonathan Brand, a graduate student in anthropology, has decided to do his fieldwork in the remote Faroe Islands in the North Atlantic.  But, despite his Harvard training, he can barely understand, let alone "study," the culture he encounters.  From his struggles with the local cuisine to his affair with the Danish woman the locals want him to marry, Jonathan is both repelled by and drawn into the Faroese way of life. Wry and insightful, Far Afield reveals reveals Susanna Kaysen's gifts of imagination, satire, and compassion.
