Great writing Oct. 28 2012
By G. Brozeit - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Set in Oslo in the mid-1930s, this introspective novel follows a doctor going through a midlife crisis just after his 40th birthday. Hoel's prose evokes V.S. Naipaul's autobiographical fiction and extended passages of Theodore Dreiser. Hoel would likely be much more widely read were he not Norwegian. The issuing of this book joined with Lyngstad's excellent translation highlights an exceptional talent. Recommended for older readers who are familiar with or want to learn more about Scandinavian literature.
