Overview Et elskelig menneske
Et elskelig menneske is the story of Birger Mostul and Kjerand Li. So which of them is a lovable person? Birger runs an art gallery and lives in a nice apartment on the west side of Oslo, and has a summer house in Southern Norway. He is orginally from Telemark, hence the Telemark pattern on the cover (it will probably be made more obvious it is a coffin). One day Kjerand, who he has not seen since childhood, comes into the gallery. It turns out he is being treated for prostate cancer, so Birger invites him to stay in the meantime. Using a fine brush, precision and courage, Klippenvåg writes about the love that blossoms between them, about being homosexuals from Telemark and about getting prostate cancer. Klippenvåg has delivered one literary pearl after another, and this year is no exception.
