Overview Atomdrømmer

The men in the short story collection Nuclear Dreams all struggle with difficult emotions, their relationships to other humans and their ability to lead a normal life. What happens when they have to handle unexpected situations, consider emotions they previously ignored and their own expectations for themselves? The modern masculinity is explored from many angles in this stylistically confident debut.

The career-focused Olav takes his hunt for success, health, and women too far. The social research manager Øyvind is anxious about the storages of nuclear rockets which he fears will extinguish everything and everyone he cares about. Magne, a father of young children, is unable to bear the guilt of what happened to his best friend when they were younger.
