Overview Marathon Berlin

Erik has moved to Berlin with his wife and children to study art history.
One day he makes it home early from his studies and see his wife in the back yard, conversing with the lawyer Rammstein - a known womanizer.
The conversation is obviously flirtatious, and Erik is jealous.

This is the start of an inner Marathon.

A journey through the German night that he is anything but prepared for.

Full German translation avaliable.

"A riveting read"

"Simply a good novel. A fine novel."

"He succeeds in writing out the irrational anxiety and worry about a pending catastrophe (…) This tensity stays with you throughout the entire novel. Jørgensen manages to plant the anxiety in the reader, almost physically."

Reviews Marathon Berlin

"Geir Olav Jørgensen gjer det til medrivande lesning."

Jan Askelund, Stavanger Aftenblad

"Det er rett og slett en god roman. En fin roman. Jeg skulle ønske den snart befinner seg i pocketutgave på alle flyplasser."

Knut Hoem, NRK

"Han lukkast med å skrive fram den irrasjonelle angsten og uroa for det katastrofale. (...) Denne spenningseffekten er med gjennom heile romanen, og Jørgensen greier å plante denne angsten i lesaren, nesten fysisk."

Oddmund Hagen, Dag og Tid
