"The best debut of 2016!" “Caught me totally off-guard.” “Startling.” Winner of the 2017 Saabye Scholarship. Sold to Denmark. Nominated for the Tarjei Vesaas debutant prize. English Fog continues in the same vein after Pelargonia. This year's novel addresses young adulthood, and recounts a father's challenges in the face of old age.
