Overview Lars Monsen

Outdoor adventurer Lars Monsen has achieved his own place in Norwegian folklore with millions of Norwegians following his extreme lifestyle and daring expeditions on his TV series and in his books.

In this personal and open-hearted biography, from the pen of the Brage-prizewinning Kjetil Østli, Monsen talks about the amazing experiences from his countless expeditions, about near-death experiences, the childhood which shaped him, his heroin-addicted brother, and an alcohol intake that could have sent his life in another direction. Monsen made a choice, early on, to live on the fringes of society's demands and expectations.

Now, for the first time, Norway's most fabled outdoorsman talks about what shaped him, what drives him – and what life has done to him.

Reviews Lars Monsen

«Som bok og beretning: Fortreffelig.»

«Ouverturen er som en taktfast parademarsj, den burde bli pensum på Journalisthøyskolen i kategorien portrettintervju»

«Ja, vi har ham nå? Nei! Monsen byr på flere sider av seg selv.»

Arne Dvergsdal, Dagbladet
