Aslaug has a more or less meaningful job as a communications manager in the idealistic organisation Future with Vision. Still, her job fills her with a constantly increasing irritation and lack of desire and irritation – to the extent that the highlight of her week is the cake served after lunch on Wednesdays. Aslaug's displeasure becomes acute when the hundred percent politically correct Karen-Britt is hired and assigned an office space next to Aslaug in the open office landscape. A mental bomb is about to go off – in the very near future.
Howling with Wolves is a novel which makes fun of both city and village, which surely is allowed.
«The text takes hold from the first page, and effortlessly holds the reader's interest through three quite different parts. (...) I'm already looking forward to the next book from this author.»
ADRESSEAVISEN, five/six stars
«In Howling with Wolves, Ida Gilbert's delightful debut novel, these opposites [the city v. the country village, the elite v. normal people] are dressed in particularly caricatured clothes (...) it is very witty (...) Gilbert writes with humor and a talent for caricature.»
