Product description

Review

"Fosse's pared down, circuitous, and rhythmic prose skillfully guides readers through past and present."

"He is undoubtedly one of the world's most important and versatile literary voices."

"Fosse . . . has been compared to Ibsen and to Beckett, and it is easy to see his work as Ibsen stripped down to its emotional essentials. But it is much more. For one thing, it has a fierce poetic simplicity."

"Norway's biggest cultural export"

"There is something quietly dramatic about Fosse's meandering and rhythmic prose . . . which has a strangely mesmerising effect."

"The Beckett of the 21st Century."

About the Author

Jon Fosse was born in 1959 on the west coast of Norway and has written over thirty books and twenty-eight plays that have been translated into over 40 languages. His first novel, Red, Black, was published in 1983, and was followed by such works as Melancholia I & II, Aliss at the Fire, and Morning and Evening, which are available in translation from Dalkey Archive Press. He is one of the world's most produced living playwrights. In 2007, Fosse became a chevalier of the Ordre national du Merite of France, and he was awarded the International Ibsen Award in 2010. In 2011, he moved into Grotten, an honorary residence for artists on the grounds of the Royal Palace in Oslo. He was awarded the European Prize for Literature in 2014 and the Nordic Council Literature Prize in 2015. He currently has homes in Bergen, Oslo, and in Hainburg, Austria.
