A genre-warping, time-traveling horror-novel-slash-feminist-manifesto for fans of Clarice Lispector and Jeanette Winterson.

Welcome to 1990s Norway. White picket fences run in neat rows, and Christian conservatism runs deep. But as the Artist considers her work, things start stirring themselves up. In a corner of Oslo, a coven of witches begin cooking up some curses. A time-traveling Edvard Munch arrives in town to join a death-metal band, closely pursued by the teenaged subject of his painting Puberty, who has murder on her mind. Meanwhile, out deep in the forest, a group of school girls get very lost and things get very strange. And awful things happen in aspic.

The book continued spiralling inwards, a full-on writing acid trip full of insight and “wow” moments. I decided to keep notes from the “recommendations” of books and arts, in between readings I was watching the movies and checking the paintings which made the experience so much more memorable. This book, for me was not about the plot, but about the picture it painted in my mind, the symbols it evoked, and?

A Beautiful Novel!

This is definitely one of my favorite novels of all time. Such an uncanny and beautiful work. The narrator has an accent that perfectly suits this Norwegian author,
