Unquiet




An astonishingly beautiful work of autofiction from one of Norway's most prominent literary writers

In Unquiet, Linn reflects on a life of reaching out to her father; each summer of her childhood, she visits him at his remote Faro island home on the edge of the Baltic Sea.

Now that she's grown up - a writer, with children of her own - and he's in his eighties, they envision writing a book together, about old age, language, memory and loss. She will ask the questions. He will answer them. The tape recorder will record.

Heart-breaking and spell-binding, Unquiet is a seamless blend of fiction and memoir in pursuit of elemental truths about how we live, love, lose and age.
