Overview Pikkoloens bagasje

In The Bellboy's Luggage - Three Stories we venture into three different literary universes. Still, the narratives are connected through the author's unmistakable style and his topics of choice. Here we meet known and loved themes and artifacts from Saabye Christensen's repertoire, stories characterized by an author with great confidence in his own material. An author that dares to venture outside the frames of both novel and short story - without letting go of the joy and power of storytelling.

Wild Wine, Polaroid and Used can be read as three unique stories. But they also form a triptych whose body consists of the Saabyean in itself. In these stories we find that the streets of Oslo and the characters at the outskirts of great events come into clearer view than ever before.

The Bellboy's Luggage is a gift to anyone who has ever been excited about the writing of Lars Saabye Christensen.
