Overview Kjersti er ein fiktiv person, helsing Kjersti

In her debut, Kjersti Wøien Håland writes about Kjersti. That is not Kjersti, but Kjersti - and Kjersti. There are the two versions of Kjersti on the cover: One is real and the other one is fictitious. The meeting between the two creates witty and sharp poems about both being observed - and being the observer. What should you believe in of what the world says about you? And what can you believe in about the world?

Some of you might remember Joan Cusacks funny admittance in the movie Working Girl? About how she sometimes throws her clothes off and dances around the house naked: "...but that does not make me Madonna." In the same way the fictitious Kjersti might admit to that she from time to time dances naked in front of the web camera: "...but that does not make me Kjersti Wøien Håland."

Author Kjersti Wøien Håland
Kjersti Wøien Håland (1988–) comes from Høyanger in Sogn og Fjordane and now lives in Oslo. She debuted in 2013 with Kjersti is a fictitious person, best wishes Kjersti (Kjersti er ein fiktiv person, helsing Kjersti); a poetry collection about being young, about being watched by and watching others, about cherry-patterned bedclothes and dancing beside your window. It was a witty and bitter debut followed by a frightening and penetrating novel Judgement Day (Dommedøgn) about many lives being threatened by something bigger. She has since written the poetry collection Panic! (Panikk!).
