Overview Et fritt liv
Simen Tveitereid and his family moved out of the city to a smallholding in the countryside. There they were able to work less and enjoy more freedom in their everyday lives. Was it all that they had hoped for? And what if everyone else did the same?

Such a life represents a break from the norm of our time for a valuable member of society who contributes to growth by having a full-time job and a high rate of consumption.

In a personal and discursive essay, Tveitereid considers the smallholding dream in one of the world's wealthiest countries.

Reviews from Et fritt liv
Tveitereid flytter til småbruket med både kunnskap om norsk arbeidsliv og rikholdige fakta om vårt forhold til natur og velstand i kofferten. Han skildrer dessuten sin egen families enorme forvandling i løpet av noen få generasjoner... Det er blitt en essayistisk, smart og velskrevet bok.Hilde Østby, Aftenposten
