Product description

Review

Even by his high standards, his magnificent new novel The Unseen is Jacobsen's finest to date, as blunt as it is subtle and is easily among the best books I have ever read. (Eileen Battersby Irish Times.)

A beautifully crafted novel . . . Quite simply a brilliant piece of work . . . Rendered beautifully into English by Don Bartlett and Don Shaw, The Unseen is a towering achievement that would be a deserved Booker International winner. (Charlie Connolly New European.)

A profound interrogation of freedom and fate, as well as a fascinating portrait of a vanished time, written in prose as clear and washed clean as the world after a storm. (Justine Jordan Guardian.)

The subtle translation, with its invented dialect, conveys a timeless, provincial voice . . . The Unseen is a blunt, brilliant book. (Tom Graham Financial Times.)

A modern masterpiece . . . A central novel in Norwegian literature. (Klassekampen.)

This is simply a beautiful and moving read . . . A master's hand turning the small into the great. (V.G.)

Roy Jacobsen at his very best . . . A fantastic novel. (Dagbladet.)

Jacobsen's lyrical voice has been gorgeously translated into English by Don Bartlett and Don Shaw (Misha Hoekstra The Riveter)

This beautifully atmospheric novel, set on a small island off Norway, where weather and the power of the sea shape lives, is a compelling story of one family, generations of which have lived on the island that bears the family name. (Books of the Year Glasgow Herald.)

A beautiful and rich depiction of place and of family life . . . an outstanding achievement. (New European, Books of the Year.)

Book Description

A group of children inherit an elemental paradise on earth in Roy Jacobsen's phenomenally bestselling new novel about love, poverty and tragedy in early twentieth century Norway
