Du er ikke død før jeg slutter å elske deg
«We can get some bad coffee at 7-eleven. We can rent a DVD where the narrative does not take place under water. I can warm your hands with my breath. We can look at the snow. I can stop biting my nails. Even if never is a great word and love an even greater one, I will put bith of those words in a sentence and I will press your chest against mine. I will look down into your light, open face. Pull your hair back. Kiss you where your nose becomes your forehead. And you will tell me to make sure that the wind does not catch you and make you fly away. And I will put my weight on you and tell you that it is impossible for you to fly away.»
You are not dead until I stop loving you is a love story from Oslo. A novel about having it all and nothing, all at the same time. But first and foremost it is the story about Iben and Daniel.
Love in the time of chaos «A tight, poetic and street-smart saga from the night side of Oslo, about a troubled mind adrift. Believable and feverish at the same time.» VG
Hate, death and love «The novelist has a story to tell and the ability to tell it. It is a gripping literary work.» DAG OG TID
«The prose is simple and held in a low tone, with almost episodically impressions, moments of sensing that effectively illustrates the short distance between having it all and then being left with nothing.» STAVANGER AFTENBLAD «In quick strokes he draws observant pictures of places and environments that can be both close and recognizeble and at the same time surprisingly strange.» AFTENPOSTEN
