About the Author
Dag Solstad (b. 1941) has written nearly thirty books, including Armand V and T Singer (both available from New Directions). Admired worldwide by writers as diverse as Lydia Davis, Geoff Dyer, and Peter Handke, Solstad has won the 2006 Brage Prize, the 1989 Nordic Council's Prize for Literature, and the Norwegian Critic's Prize in 1969, 1992, and 1999.
Agnes Scott Langeland was born in Scotland and moved to Norway in 1971. Previous translations include poems by Rune Christiansen in The Edinburgh Review and Petter Mejlander's book Pushwagner (Magikon, 2008).
With sublime restraint and subtle modulation, Solstad conveys an entire age of sorrow and loss.
I find him an utterly hypnotic and utterly humane writer.--James Wood
His language sparkles with its new old-fashioned elegance and radiates a unique luster, inimitable and full of elan.--Karl Ove Knausgaard
There's an undeniable beauty in the way he raises tedious self-reflexivity to the level of music.--Wilson McBee (09/06/2019)
Solstad, regarded by Norwegians as arguably their finest and surely their most critically praised and influential contemporary novelist, pairs his deep political engagement with an ever-renewed formal invention. With each new novel, he startles us, his readers, yet again with something unexpected. I find him, with his spirited intelligence, a delight and an inspiration to read, whether (haltingly!) in Norwegian or, over the past few years, happily, gratefully, in English translation.--Lydia Davis
