This fine novel of the author's childhood in a small village in Western Norway, tells of a gifted boy growing up among people burdened by tradition, that oddly enough also includes the seeds for change. The language is very poetic. ...more

“Eg trudde dei fleste var på Eidsvoll og laga grunnlov da, men foreldra til Lars var no heime. Dei kjende ikkje att den skjeggete kjempa som kom om kvelden og bad om hus. Dei bad han gå til grannegarden og be om nattely der, for dei hadde det så trongt, sa dei. Men han Lars gjekk rett opp på loftet og sovna med eit brak. Om morgonen kom faren opp og såg på risen som låg der og snorka, og vekte han med desse ord: – Du er no vel aldri son min, han Lars? Og så vart det stor gjensynsglede. Dei slakta gjøkalven, som skrive står, og baud inn til gjestebod.” 0 likes
“Og karvilendingane brukte karve på fisk, karve på brød, og togg karve i staden for tobakk. For det fekk dei namnet sitt, sidan karvi er dialektvarianten av ordet karve. Dei levde og døydde i ein stank av karve, heilt til det kom ein prest i Agerøen som bar namnet Dick, og han fekk dei til å vakne.” 0 likes
