A young mother speaks to her second born child. Since the drama of childbirth, all feels calm. The world is new and full of surprises, even though dangers lurk behind every corner; a car out of control, disease ever-present in the air, the unforgiving speed of time. She tells of the times before the child was born, when the world felt unsure and enveloped in darkness, of long nights with an older lover, of her writing career and the precariousness of beginning a relationship and then a family with her husband, Bo. A portrait of modern motherhood, THE CHILD is a love story about what it means to be alive and stay alive, no matter how hard the journey.

When Kjersti A. Skomsvold was seventeen years old and about to start engineering studies at college, she found herself almost unable to move. "Laid out like a relic" in a nursing home, she listens to an old woman dying, watches her boyfriend drift away, and makes compendious lists of her worries (that she will have to go speed-dating in a wheelchair, that she will be afraid and in pain for the rest of her life). She also begins to compose a novel on Post-it notes that she sticks on the wall above her bed. Monsterhuman is an autofictional tour de force--a funny, sad, astoundingly energetic novel about suffering from chronic fatigue syndrome, the power of writing, and twenty-first-century literary life.

"One of the first Faroese books to be translated into English, The Brahmadells is an epic novel chronicling the lives of a particular family--nicknamed "the Brahmadells"--against the larger history of the Faroe Islands, from the time of Danish rule, through its national awakening, to its independence. Filled with colorful characters and various family intrigues, the novel incorporates a number of genres and styles as it shifts from individual stories to larger world issues. There are historical documents, including nineteenth-century medical journals, documents detailing the lives of real historical figures, digressions about religion, a measles outbreak, and many other travails, large and small. Epic in its scope, importance, and literary approach, The Brahmadells is a playful, engrossing look at life in an island nation whose rich history is relatively unknown to most English readers"--

Mathea Martinsen ist fast hundert Jahre alt, lebt am Stadtrand von Oslo und hat gerade ihren geliebten Mann verloren. Für wen soll sie nach dem Tod des schrulligen Statistikers jetzt ihre Ohrenwärmer stricken? Mit wem kann sie nun über das Leben philosophieren? Matheas Versuche, ins Leben zurückzufinden, rühren und amüsieren zu Tränen. "Ich wünschte, ich könnte den kleinen Rest vom Leben aufsparen, bis ich weiß, was ich damit anfangen soll. Aber das geht nicht, dafür müsste ich mich schon einfrieren, und wir haben nur eines dieser kleinen Gefrierfächer über dem Kühlschrank ..." Mathea Martinsen will ihre verbleibende Lebenszeit gut nutzen - aber wie? Schon die Teilnahme an einer Tombola im Seniorenzentrum misslingt, weil man prompt ihre eigene Jacke verlost. Und ist eine im Garten vergrabene Zeitkapsel mit ihrem Hochzeitskleid und selbstgestrickten Ohrenwärmern das richtige Mittel, ihr Andenken für die Nachwelt zu bewahren? Mit Humor und großer Zärtlichkeit zeichnet der Roman das Bild einer schüchternen alten Dame, die es noch einmal wissen will.

As Oscar Wilde once wrote, “Fashion is a form of ugliness so absolutely unbearable that we have to alter it every six months.” And yet it serves to make us beautiful, or at least make us feel beautiful. In this book, Mari Grinde Arntzen asks how and why this is—how can fashion simultaneously attract us to its glamour and repel us with its superficiality and how being called “fashionable” can be at once a compliment and an insult. Arntzen guides us through the major figures and brands of today’s fashion industry, showing how they shape us and in turn why we love to be shaped by them. She examines both everyday, affordable “fast fashion” brands, as well as the luxury market, to show how fashion commands a powerful influence on every socioeconomic level of our society. Stepping into our closets with us, she thinks about what happens when we get dressed: why fashion can make us feel powerful, beautiful, and original at the same time that it forces us into conformity. Stripping off the layers of the world’s fifth largest industry, garment by garment, she holds fashion up as a phenomenon, business, and art, exploring the questions it forces us to ask about the body, image, celebrity, and self-obsession. Ultimately, Arntzen asks the most direct question: what is fashion? How has it taken such a powerful hold on the world, forever propelling us toward its concepts of beauty?
