Overview Dyrenes lykke

After being kicked out of school, the narrator starts attending a new school in the town, where he gets new classmates and ends up part of an environment which broadens his world in all directions. Some of these friends are pretty fearless, but none as much as Sal, his old friend who also attends this school.

In the same vein of his previous books in the trilogy, Animal Happiness is a lyrical novel, propelled forward by the language, the pictorial texts are painted with at times absurd precision, full of fresh observations about friendship, insecurity and belonging. But it’s also about graffiti. And about cows.

With Animal Happiness Frederik Svindland finishes his trilogy of novels offering us an insight into the author’s upbringing, family, and social circle.
