The fourth volume of Echoes of the City centres on Jesper Kristoffersen and Trude Hagen, whose destinies are closely bound to the city and the streets they live on, as well as Oslo’s other inhabitants.
Fagerborg and the world are shrinking, the pace of life has stepped up a notch: it is the 1980s and a new generation is taking over, a generation with the world at its feet. The tramlines bind the city together but also lead to places that take people out of the city – whether to Hurdal, Sweden or Lake Como. Regardless of how different their dreams may be, their struggles place them at odds with the city and the world.
