Overview Hva er det med mor
Through this unusually well-written portrait, which is both heart-wrenching and provocative, we meet the teenager Marit, who is continuously being asked, "What kind of mother do you have anyway?" This is exactly the question she keeps asking herself.

“Vigdis Hjorth has written a challenging, provoking, ruthlessly revealing, brave and beautiful book about an alcoholic mother and her teenage daughter. (…) It is a novel full of insight that Hjorth has written. It is at the same time damned provoking and heartbreakingly gripping. (…) “What´s with mother?” is a book that stays with you after you put it down. It challenges, creates discomfort and it still brings joy.”

Reviews from Hva er det med mor
«Vigdis Hjorth har skrevet en utfordrende, provoserende, hensynsløst utleverende, modig og vakker bok om en alkoholisert mor og hennes tenårigsdatter […] Det er en innsiktsfull og klok roman Hjorth har skrevet. Den er på samme tid både fandenivoldsk provoserende og hjerteskjærende gripende. […] Hva er det med mor er en bok som ikke straks forlater deg når du legger den fra deg. Den utfordrer den skaper ubehag, og den gir glede."Turid Larsen, Dagsavisen
