Morten Langeland's new novel Fifty/fifty is about an author who sits in the library of the new National Museum, struggling to write an essay about the typical Norwegian kindness in Tarjei Vesaas' authorship. During a break in his work he becomes aware of a scater who repeatedly, over several days, tries to pull off a 50/50-grind down the rail outside the museum.
The novel is about rehab, about not giving up and about self-care through the love for others.
«If you dislike Jan Erik Vold, Dag Solstad, Norman Mailer or J.D. Salinger, you’ll hate Morten Langeland.»
