I am looking forward to my conversation with the fabulous Norwegian writer Vigdis Hjorth at the House of Literature in Oslo on October 5.Â We’ll talk about her brand new novel Arv og MiljÃ¸.
In November, I published an essay on Vigdis Hjorth’s new collection of essays, Fryd og fare (“Danger and Delight”) in Morgenbladet. In December, I published an essay on Ibsen’s late style, exemplified by a reading of When We Dead Awaken, in the same newspaper. Note that some links to Morgenbladet remain behind a paywall for some time after publication.
On Thursday 31 October I’ll have the pleasure of discussing literature and writing with Chimamanda Ngozi AdichieÂ and Sofi Oksanen at Litteraturhuset at 20.00. This will be a wonderful opportunity to learn how two young women writers view the place of writing in the world today.
