Stig Aasvik

Tøyen Park

Tøyen Park is a park in Oslo but also part of a stream of consciousness, a novel that unfolds in the head of the protagonist, Stig Aasvik. Past and present collide and branch out into a swirling, quivering now. Tøyen Park encompasses a single consciousness but also an entire world. As a whole, it is a tapestry of existential problems, linguistic transgressions, humour and gravity, joie de vivre, anxiety and hysteria.
