Heidi Linde

Yes, We Can!

Obama’s slogan ”change we can believe in” reverberated far outside the borders of the US. Even in a small town in Eastern Norway, Terese thought that it was high time for some change. But now, as she waddles about in the final stages of pregnancy, she is unsure whether this is the change she needed.

We encounter Kevin, who has suffered from a broken heart for twelve years, Lydia and her imaginary friends Queen Sonja and Jessica, who is coming home to attend her own wedding … to a man she no longer knows if she ought to marry.

Heidi Linde (born 1973) is a genuinely talented writer, and writes a warm, yet vivid prose about characters that will touch your heart.

She has been a rising star since her debut novel Under the Table (2002) made it to the main selection in Norway’s major book club, but her big breakthrough came with her third novel, Yes, We Can! (2011), which had fantastic reviews and sold more than 25 000 copies in Norway. Her last novel, This is Norway (2015), has also gotten amazing reviews.

She is also one of few plot driven women writers to traverse the gender gap; the reviewers obviously see her as a writer for both men and women (and compare her to giants like Nick Hornby and Jonathan Frantzen). This is more rare than one should believe.
