'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.
