‘The best debut of 2016!’ ‘Caught me totally off-guard.’ ‘Startling.’ Winner of the 2017 Saabye Scholarship. 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. The story is expressed in language that contains both hopefulness and sorrow.
‘… the follow-up English Fog shows a language and literary talent out of the ordinary. (…) With these two short and thorough novels Svindland will be acknowledged as a different voice in contemporary literature. Svindland does not yell loudly, but sees clearly, and he can describe a sunset with stunning beauty.’
