Frederik Svindland


Pelargonia is a novel about the process of growing up rather than a narrative plot. It is a collection of texts and descriptions of a childhood in Norway at the beginning of the 1990s, which now and then opens connections to both youth and young adulthood.

Svindland enriches the realm of books with literary sensibility, transforming the private nostagia into a general expression of how our childhood never stops working inside us.’
