1 Kjell Askildsen A Great Deserted Landscape Et stort øde landskap FICTION SHORT STORIES Oktober Pages A recurring theme in Kjell Askildsen's short stories is the loneliness and vulnerability of man. In a few pages Askildsen portrays the situation of a person, and with that a whole destiny. In A Great Deserted Landscape Askildsen truly shows his insight into the human mind and his lingustic sensitivity. "In a masterly manner, Askildsen uses an ancient literary device: the aggressive vulnerability. In doing so, he gives the reader no choice but to come along with him until the very last sentence, grateful for an authorship which, despite evident ideals and references, has become such an independent artistry expression... In Askildsen s work, the humans are thank God still secretive and incomprehensive beings, in spite of their exposed exhaustedness" Aftenposten FINN STåLE FELBERG Kjell Askildsen (b. 1929) is regarded a master of short stories. He entered the literary scene in 1953 with the collection of short stories From Now on I'll Take You All the Way Home. Askildsen s hallmark is his seemingly plain voice that quivers with a latent desire to communicate, and is frequently couched in a very black and cynical humour which, but for a deep well of irony, might seem dispiriting, even depressive. His human insight and masterly penmanship enable the few words he uses to convey an instantaneous perception of life as it really is, and then to turn that perception into a literary feast. His books have been translated into more than 20 languages.

2 Brit Bildøen Seven Days in August Sju dagar i august FICTION NOVEL Samlaget Pages In the course of seven days in August, Sofie and Otto Krohg-Iversen, a married couple, experience a series of trivial mishaps. Each of these incidents in itself is not so serious, but they reveal large and small cracks both in their marriage and the community around them. Is everything falling apart? Or are these mishaps reminders of a greater catastrophe in life? The novel is set several years into the future. Eight years have passed since the terrorist attack in Oslo and Utøya, a cataclysm that had hit Sofie and Otto badly. At that time they had devised a plan for survival, strategies that have kept them and their relationship going until this week in August. But for how long can the grief process be a joint effort? Is sorrow something that can be shared for only a short period, and thereafter something you have to live alone with? While rainstorms ravage Oslo and conflicts at work accumulate, it becomes clear to Sofie and Otto that their life strategies will have to be re-evaluated and the important questions can no longer be avoided.

3 Tomas Espedal Tramp. (or the Art of Living a Wild and Poetic Life) Gå. (eller kunsten å leve et vilt og poetisk liv) FICTION SHORT PROSE Gyldendal Pages Walking. Setting out on foot, out onto the open road; a romantic venture, yet filled with tough experiences: sleeping outdoors, losing one s way, confronting one s limitations, meeting people, passing through wilderness and town, drifting through the streets of Paris and Istanbul, crossing bridges and borders, walking in foreign lands and unknown regions. The walker has neither protection nor home, he travels without haste or fixed destination, he walks to be closer to the things he comes across on his travels. He aims to live the wild and poetic life. He follows his own routes, but also takes detours in the footsteps of the famous literary wanderers; Rousseau, Wordsworth, Hölderlin and Rimbaud; he reads the poets and the philosophers in a quest to teach himself the art of walking. Tomas Espedal made his debut in He has published short prose and novels alike, and was a prize-winner in 1991 of the joint Radio P2/Book Club Novelists competition.

4 Eline Lund Fjæren FICTION NOVEL The Clock and the Bed Klokken og sengen Oktober Pages LINN HEIDI STOKKEDAL She is nineteen years old and has just moved to Bergen, where she lives in a studio flat. She has applied for several jobs she hopes she won t get and doesn t attend any of her lectures at university. She has one friend in this new city: Julie. It is always Julie who calls, not the other way round. And the man she used to see wants to visit. Eline Lund Fjæren (born 1994) comes from Aurskog-Høland. Her first novel, Young Girl, Adult Male, won her the Norli First Book Prize But the place she came from is still so clear to her: the dead snake she cycled past every day for an entire summer, the glistening elk carcass hanging from the ceiling after the hunt, and her mother mourning her lost child. But now she has chosen an adult life in the city on the other side of the mountain. Most of all she just wants to be alone, even if it means being broke, lonely and listless. The Clock and the Bed is a finely tuned portrait of a young woman who is prepared to lay herself bare and transform. "superb unveiling of the human mind [ ] her ability to grasp the human mind awakes both joy and excitement [ ] She writes overwhelmingly well, without restriction yet very credibly." 6/6 stars Bergens Tidende

5 Gjermund Gisvold A Cuckoo in the Nest Gjøkungen FICTION NOVEL Tiden Pages English, German and French sample translations available PHOTO: GEIR MOGEN Anton Dalgård is a simple soul with a dark past. He lives alone in an apartment, his neighbours are a failed author, some African immigrants, a sorrowful janitor, quite a few pensioners and a couple of shady characters. Anton has little contact with the few family members he has, he's got no job, no lovelife and no future prospects to speak of. In fact, he would really rather be left alone, but he keeps ending up in situations involving the other residents of the building. With Anton's help, they are pushed closer and closer to the edge, until someone falls off. In a naïvist and withdrawn style, rich in humour and sharp observations, Gisvold paints an entertaining and eerie portrait of a micro community falling apart.

The last few years he has been studying creative writing at the Writer's Academy in Tromsø, while working on several movierelated writing projects. A Cockoo in the Nest is his first novel.

7 Cathrine Knudsen Manual Manuell FICTION NOVEL Pelikan Pages The only times Cara Alona met her grandfather as a little girl, was when her family drove through the local toll road on their way to town. There he sat in the small box operating the manual payment in the end of the cash lane, silently reaching out for the money his son handed over, without a word, without any sign of recognition. Now Cara is herself an adult, with kids of her own, and with the relationship, or lack there of, to her grandfather and the rest of the family as starting point, she writes her own life, not as it unfolds in time, as a straight narrative, but seen through her often strained relationship with others. In prose extremely sensitive of the human condition and relational interaction, Cathrine Knudsen in this novel touches upon central existential questions. What is belonging? What is identity? What is care? Manual is a kind of archaeology of the emotions, consistently seeking the limits of what is human, between man and woman, the sick and the healthy, the child and the adult, dependency and freedom. ANNA JULIA GRANBERG Cathrine Knudsen lives at a farm in the rural Modum, with her author husband Thure Erik Lund. She has previously published three novels, all of them to great critical acclaim. Manual is her first novel at Pelikanen Publishing house, where she has worked closely with her editor, and Pelikanens founder, Karl Ove Knausgård. Leonhardt & Høier Literary Agency A/S Studiestræde 35 DK-1455 Copenhagen K Denmark Tel: Fax: Manual was hailed by critics as one of the best literary publications in Norway in 2014, predicting Knudsen ultimate breakthrough as a novelist.

8 Benedicte Meyer Kroneberg In the Best Sense I beste mening FICTION NOVEL Cappelen Damm Pages Helene grew up with foster parents Anna and Helge. She has now started her own family and moved back to her home town in the hope of saving her marriage with Karl. It is winter, they are living in a huge old house, and Karl is working out of town. He says that he cannot come home because of the weather. PHOTO: FREDRIK ARFF Benedicte Meyer Kroneberg was born in Oslo, but now lives on the outskirts of Arendal. She graduated from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology with a degree in Nordic literature, and works as a lower secondary teacher. This novel tells the story of Helene's search for companionship: about feeling like a guest in her foster parents' house, about young love, longing and loneliness. Helene and her growing sense of unease are headed for a storm: will Karl come home? In the Best Sense is an insightful novel about belonging. Benedicte Meyer Kroneberg explores communication problems in close relationships and how people can become lonely even in the most seemingly ideal situations. It is also a novel about those that fall between the cracks, about those who are too unforgiving for most, but not confident enough when it comes to those closest to them, and about how the incorrect assumptions we make about the motive of others can have serious consequences.

9 Trude Marstein Doing Good Gjøre godt FICTION NOVEL Gyldendal Pages Saturday night has just turned into Sunday as Peter approaches the town where he is about to start a new job. In a train travelling in the opposite direction Peter catches sight of his ex-lover Karoline leaving the town. Peter and Karoline are just two of the hundred and eighteen characters that inhabit Trude Marstein s daringly constructed novel, Doing good. This is a novel which framework is defined precisely by time and place, but which composition is driven forward by strong sensory and emotional impressions. Shifting elegantly from narrator to narrator, it captures the most diverse characters and environments, all within a small Norwegian town and in the space of one July weekend. A book about passion and death, work and escape, drunkenness and reconciliation, bewilderment and reflection. And ultimately about how, as human beings, in the midst of everything life throws at us, we struggle to do good. Trude Marstein has confirmed her prominent position among younger Norwegian authors. She received the Debutant Prize in 1998, and later won the Sult Prize and the Dobloug Prize. She has written several novels, a children s book and essays. She is listed on the Norwegian equivalent of the Granta list.

11 Lars Mytting The Flame Birches Svøm med dem som drukner FICTION NOVEL Gyldendal Pages English sample translation available PHOTO: CHRISTIAN ELGVIN In 1971, a French-Norwegian couple dies when they step on an unexploded grenade at the old battlefields of the Somme. Their three-year old son Edvard is found alone four days later in a town many miles away. The tragedy remains unsolved, and the boy grows up with his grandparents at a desolate farm in Norway. At age 23, Edvard discovers that an unknown person delivered a coffin to the funeral agency many years ago, intended for his grandfather. The coffin is a splendid piece of craftsmanship, made of beautiful flame birch. Edvard believes it to be made by his grand uncle, a master carpenter who bitterly left the family decades ago and worked in France during the 1930s, then disappeared. Strangely, he seems to be connected with the tragic incident in Edvarde sets off to a journey for the truth and to revive his sorrow, and the quest brings him places as diverse as the Shetland Isles, Edinburgh and back to the old battlefields where he once disappeared. He discovers that his mother was searching for a family heirloom in 1971, «something age old, huge, enough to fill a horse wagon» but what it really was, and if it still exists, is yet to be resolved. He finds that someone else is searching for it, a young woman with an inherited obsession, and Edvard is drawn towards her with both desire and despise. The Flame Birches is a poetic mystery, a tale of desperate searches, of loss and love, visiting three generations and European historical events, all seen through the clever eye of a rural boy with an intense emotional register, especially for trees and nature, a register that will grow at a painfully quick pace as he unravels the past. Lars Mytting was born in 1968 in Fåvang, Norway. He worked as a journalist and editor before writing full time. He has published two novels and a non-fiction book, which has been widely translated.

13 Tore Renberg See You Tomorrow Vi ses i morgen FICTION NOVEL Oktober Pages Pål has a shameful secret that has dragged him into huge debt, much bigger than he can ever hope to pay down on his modest civil servant salary. He desperately doesn t want anybody to find out especially not his teenage daughters or his ex-wife. It is time to get creative. Sixteen-year-old Sandra, too, has a secret. She is in love with the impossibly charming delinquent Daniel William, a love so strong and pure nothing can come in its way. Not her concerned parents, not Jesus, and certainly not some other girl.

She later lives alone for a whole winter in a log cabin in an Indian reservation, with grizzly bears, wolves and strange men as her neighbours.

The story is so consistent and well-shaped, the themes so simple, and yet so universal; to overcome your fear, to find peace in yourself and trust in your world, the outer journey which mirrors the inner, but it never becomes clichéd or banal.

15 Carl Frode Tiller The Encirclement Trilogy Innsirkling trilogien FICTION NOVEL - TRILOGY Aschehoug 2007/2011/ /396/350 Pages English sample translation available PHOTO: VEGARD EGGEN Encirclement: David has lost his memory. A newspaper advertisement encourages old and new acquaintances to write him letters, in order to revive his past. The letters create a network of texts where the biography of David, the writers, and other people, are rewritten and put at stake. The letters were written in 2006, but evolve around the past. This way, false views are created adolescent dreams, the ambitions of artists and plans for the future. What is a life, how is a life story created under the influence of other people's story? In Encirclement II three new voices write to David, illuminate another phase of his life and encircling him further while at the same time encircling their own lives. These are intensely glowing and dark stories that ruthlessly display the feebleness of both the close relations and the cultural and social conditions we all are subject to. In Encirclement III we meet Marius, who was accidentally swapped with David at the maternity ward. And with David s story, the last piece falls into place in the picture which Tiller has constructed through three books. The result is naturally the stories about David, but also a series of psychological snapshots of relations between people, portraits of decades and environments, as well as an overarching tale of a modern Norway and the world. Titles in the series so far sold to: Albanian, British English, Bulgarian, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, French, German, Hungarian, Macedonian, Romanian, Russian, Serbian (...) a talent for storytelling that few of his generation can measure up to. (...) an authorship which promises to be the best thing to happen to Norwegian realism in a very long time. Dagens Næringsliv Doubtlessly one of his generation s most important novelists, Carl Frode Tiller is admired for his instantly recognizable, furious prose and his ability to create vivid, complex characters whose fates often seem sealed by their inability to break out of their own destructive behavioural patterns that mark their relationships with other people. Though they might come across as dark and desperate, Tiller succeeds in portraying these tragic characters in a way that arouses the deepest sympathy in the reader. Few has won as many literary prizes for their first three books as Tiller, starting with the sensational debut The Slope in In 2005 he was named one of the 10 best Norwegian writers under the age of 35. In 2006, The Slope was named among the 25 most important Norwegian novels from the last 25 years in a prestigious contest in the daily Dagbladet.
