In contemporary Norwegian fiction Tomas Espedal's work stands out as uniquely personal; it can be difficult to separate the fiction from Espedal's own experiences. Against Nature, a companion volume to Espedal's earlier Against Art, is an examination of factory work, love's labor, and the work of writing. Espedal dwells on the notion that working is required in order to live in compliance with society, but is this natural? And how can it be natural when he is drawn toward impossible things-impossible love, books, myths, and taboos? He is drawn into the stories of Abelard and Heloise, of young Marguerite Duras and her Chinese lover, and soon realizes that he, too, is turning into a person who must choose to live against nature.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A masterpiece of literary under-statement. Everybody who has recently been thirsting for a new, unexhausted realism, like water in the desert, will love this boo." (Die Zeit, on the Norwegian edition)
