Overview Dobbeltliv

Eivind Buene picks up musical threads from the novels Enmannsorkester and Allsang, and takes them further in a collection of literary essays.

These texts listen, investigate and postulate, but most of all, they ask questions. What can music teach us about slowness? What stories can Glenn Gould's piano stool tell? Why do we talk about writing a song? What does a Norwegian novel sound like – and what is it about Gustav Mahler?

‘After reading this I feel much smarter and more sensitive.’

Thoughtful and well-written novel about music and literature, and the relationship between them.’

‘... and I find myself hoping that Buene will be invited to lecture on music in Norwegian schools.’
