Overview Helvetesporten
Thematically, Helvetesporten looks at Rodin's sculpture of the same name. In these three short stories we meet artists who are at a crucial point in their lives, both artistically and in their interpersonal relationships. In one of the stories we meet Rodin himself, who takes in a young Rainer Maria Rilke to assist him in his work with the sculpture.

Hilde Lindset's second book is a powerful collection of short stories!

Held Lindset det ho lova i debutsamlinga?

"Så Helvetesporten imponerer både gjennom helhetskomposisjonen, bruken av undertekst og innslagene av psykologisk dybdeboring."Steinar Sivertsen, Stavanger Aftenblad
"(...)det er reflekterte og velskrivne tekstar som gir forventningar til neste møte med forfattaren."Oddmund Hagen, Dag og Tid
