When Stig Sæterbakken died in 2012, he left behind a manuscript of autobiographical notes.
The texts range from stylistic essay writing to slapstick humour. They give us insight into his day-to-day and family life, and describe the importance of friendship and the significance of other authorships, all in Sæterbakken’s persuasive literary form.
This is a powerful testimony from one of our most important contemporary authorships.
'Even the darkest texts in the posthumous publication of Stig Sæterbakken’s notes are brightened up by the author’s joy in giving them expression.'
'A dark, amusing and beautiful conclusion to an unusually wholehearted writing career.'
