In contemporary Norwegian fiction Tomas Espedal's work stands out as uniquely personal; it can be difficult to separate the fiction from Espedal's own experiences. In that vein, his novel Against Art is not just the story of a boy growing up to be a writer, but it is also the story of writing. Specifically, it is about the profession of writing-the routines, responsibility, and obstacles. Yet, Against Art is also about being a father, a son, and a grandson; about a family and a family's tales, and about how preceding generations mark their successors. It is at once about choices and changes, about motion and rest, about moving to a new place, and about living. Praise for the Norwegian Edition"One of the most beautiful, most important books I've read for years."-Klassekampen "Espedal has written an amazingly rich novel, which will assuredly stand out as one of the year's best and will also further fortify the quality of Norwegian literature abroad."- Adresseavisen "Against Art attacks literature while at the same time being intensely literary. Our greatest sorrows and torments, the individual experiences often so anemic in art, find a voice of their own."-Morgenbladet "Against Art moves me with its maternal history and proves yet again that Tomas Espedal writes great novels."-Dag og Tid

Recensioner i media

"An impressive, multi-layered narrative, of the power and limits of art, of finding one's place--within a family, as well as a place to live and work--of dealing with grief and ever-changing intimate personal connections, whether abrupt--the death of a loved one--or more gradual--a daughter coming into her own. It is a complete work, yet also feels like a stage, of his life and writing-career. . . . A quite fascinating, rich, and deeply personal work."-- "The Complete Review" Against Art is not 'about' anything but instead details its own process of creation. The result is a book that is never anything less than interesting, and which reads as an experimental meditation on itself.--Edward Sugde "Times Literary Supplement"
