When Everything is Built of Paper

This debut novel consists of chapters structured as homework. Each chapter has a subject and a topic, while all the paragraphs are the protagonist’s memories and start with ‘I remember’. The memories are drawn from childhood on a farm in the Telemark region, the temporary house the mother moves to and the house in the town where the new Dad lives. As the protagonist grows up, the farm and the father steadily become ever more dilapidated.

Nominated for the Tarjei Vesaas' Debutant Prize 2021.
