Overview Ingenting å være redd for

Thomas is a former psychologist but now works as a lecturer following the great success of his book, The Grammar of the Good Life. He and his family live in Oslo, within the secure framework of the garden city of Ullevål Hageby, a big contrast to where he grew up. Whereas everything went up in smoke in his childhood, everything is under control in garden city. Until one day he receives an audio recording of himself at the shop. Then a photograph. Someone is watching him, but why? These extraordinary events awaken something in Thomas, something he repressed that is now resurfacing. Little by little, the past comes back to him, this time as a stranger.

In Nothing To Be Afraid Of, Eivind Sudmann Larsen dives deep into the mind of a man who is gradually losing control over the life he is living and the life he has lived. The novel is a surefooted investigation of how we approach our past, the mechanisms we use to cope with trauma inflicted on us and that we have inflicted on others, and what is needed to live a good life despite the cards we have been dealt.
