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