My name is Eli. I am the one telling the story and the one the story is about. The one with the voices in her head.

Eli Larsen is a talented author and film-maker. She writes books. She directs films. She wins awards. She is a success. But Eli has a secret. Since she was a child she has shared her life with Espen, Erik, Prince Eugen and Emil. Sometimes they're friendly, sometimes comforting, but sometimes they want to hurt Eli and the people she loves most.

In this candid and beautiful novel Beate Grimsrud offers an unflinching insight into the secret world of the mind.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'A deeply insightful and independent work. A portrait of a violent power of conviction, whether Eli's unstoppable struggle to cope everyday life' * Aftenposten *
'A voice and literary style and authorship that's second to none in Norwegian contemporary literature' * Dagbladet *
'What shines through is a courageous and imaginative personality, a triumph of optimism over often bitter experience, turning this episodic story of what is to use the cliche aptly for once - a rollercoaster of a life into a page-turner. A bestselling prize winner in author Beate Grimsrud's native Norway, it's waited five years for publication here. You wonder why it took so long' * Daily Mail *
'An extraordinarily articulate account of something that is seldom put into words' * The Times *
