Description

'Solstad doesn't write to please other people. Do exactly what you want, that's my ideaathe drama exists in his voice' Lydia Davis Armand is a diplomat rising through the ranks of the Norwegian foreign office, but he's caught between his public duty to support foreign wars in the Middle East and his private disdain of Western intervention. He hides behind his knowing ironic statements about the war, which no one grasps and which change nothing in the real world. Armand's son joins the Norwegian SAS to fight in the Middle East, despite being specifically warned against such a move by his father, which leads to catastrophic, heartbreaking consequences. Told exclusively in footnotes to an unwritten novel, this is Solstad's radically unconventional novel about how we experience the passing of time- how it fragments, drifts, quickens, and how single moments can define a life. Winner of the Brage Prize
