Overview Vidunderlege Vera

Welcome to Wrydale, the Twin Peaks of the Norwegian fjords! Here, Vera sits in the ticket booth at the local swimming pool hoping that somebody in the municipal administration will die. Or retire. She isn’t wicked, just desperate. And with good reason, as it turns out. Wonderful Vera is a novel that brims over with life and vigour, love and lies, humour and warmth, pipes and rebellion, laughter and sheer desperation.

Reviews Vidunderlege Vera

Galgenhumor og bygdeliv

«Dette er en roman som framkaller den store sommerfølelsen. Den har godt driv og inneholder både spenning og romantikk.
Her er treffende skildringer av vestlandsk bygdeliv, med innslag av galgenhumor og forbitrelse.»

Hildebjørg Gysland, Fanaposten (boktips)
