"e;A brilliant study of the mundane, full of unexpected detours and driving prose. Hjorth's novel ingeniously orbits the intimate stories that are possible only when a character has put words on paper and sent them through the post."e; ? New York Times Book Review, ?The Best Post Office Novel You Will Read Before the Election?"e;Vigdis Hjorth is one of my favorite contemporary writers."e; ? Sheila Heti, author of Motherhood and How Should a Person Be?From the author of the 2019 National Book Award Longlisted Will and TestamentEllinor, a 35-year-old media consultant, has not been feeling herself; she's not been feeling much at all lately. Far beyond jaded, she picks through an old diary and fails to recognise the woman in its pages, seemingly as far away from the world around her as she's ever been. But when her coworker vanishes overnight, an unusual new task is dropped on her desk. Off she goes to meet the Norwegian Postal Workers Union, setting the ball rolling on a strange and transformative six months.This is an existential scream of a novel about loneliness (and the postal service!), written in Vigdis Hjorth's trademark spare, rhythmic and cutting style.
