WINNER OF THE NORWEGIAN CRITICS AWARD
“If you are going to read just one novel about loneliness and the postal service, let it be this one! (…) It is almost impossible to know where to start when you talk about Hjorths novels. They are instant, but keep hanging around kicking you after you finish reading. This time she brings together politics, the postal service and a lonely woman. Can that be interesting? Yes, with Hjorth it can.”
“Seldom have I gotten so high on a novel as I did when I was reading Vigdis Hjorths book about the EU Postal Directive. (…)One of her best books. (…) I am almost tempted to say Long Live Vigdis Hjorth!”
Vigdis Hjorth was awarded the Norwegian Critics Award for this novel.
