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.”DAGSAVISEN
