After what was supposed to be a short get-together by the river before dusk, two good friends manage to bring home a freshly caught salmon by a funny coincidence. They have no other choice but to prepare the salmon on a whim and spontaneously invite a bunch of people over for dinner. The invitation is quite random and widely spread, on a first-come, first-served basis which will set the tone for the rest of the night.
Nails in Mourning is a novel in which a large and spawning mature salmon not only forms the economic basis for the story, but also in a way forms the value basis for the way the text develops.
To belong or to fall behind, to live or to exist, to be included or to be in a 'condition of secrecy'– thats's what this weird, demanding and yet deeply captivating novel is about.
A LITTERARY FEAST
The wordstream Nails in mourning is rich and satisfying. I reccomend grabbing a slice.
