Overview Forteljingar frå utsida

This book is comprised of three interwoven stories. Three men, each of them going through his own existential crisis: Otto, the hermit, and Moshe Levi. Their lives are very different, and they live in different places—two in Norway and one in Israel. But they all have a tendency to find themselves on the edges of society, both physically and mentally. Are things connected on some level, even though they occur in separate lives?

"If this grippingly beautiful story, three times divided in three, had been published in a bigger language than Norwegian, I think it would have been noticed internationally."
STAVANGER AFTENBLAD

"He twists and turns the sentences and perspectives effortlessly in ways you did not imagine, and take your breath away"
BERGENSAVISEN

"He is a man who can write, and there is of course many who can do that. But not many with the unusual vision of the world that Jørgensen has."
DAG OG TID

"...foreshadows a broader perspective in Norwegian literature."

Reviews from Forteljingar frå utsida
"Hadde denne gripande vakre, tre gonger tredelte forteljinga kome på eit større språk enn norsk, ville eg tru ho skulle bli lagd merke til internasjonalt. (...) Jørgensen gjer det på liten plass og med stilistisk meisterskap." (...) Forteljingar frå utsida er ikkje lik resten av dusinet."Jan Askelund, Stavanger Aftenblad
"Han vrir og vender uanstrengt setninger og synsvinkler du ikke så komme, og tar pust fra deg."Bjørn O. Mørch Larsen, Bergensavisa
”Med denne romanen viser Geir Olav Jørgensen det mange såg i 2006: Han er ein mann som kan skrive, og det er det sjølvsagt mange som kan, men ikkje alle med dette uvanlege blikket på verda som Jørgensen har.”Oddmund Hagen, Dag og Tid
”(…) bærer bud om et videre perspektiv i norsk litteratur.”Cathrine Krøger, Dagbladet
