Men driving away. Men who stay. Men crashing new cars. Men with too much debt. Men with unusual genitalia. Lonely men. Peaceful men. Violent men. Honest men. Criminal men. Men somewhere in between. Men from Rjukan. Men from Lillestrøm. Men from Warsaw. Men in a new, twisted Norway. Men who need women. Men who need men. Men nobody needs.
It’s been nine years since Frode Grytten last published a short story collection, the genre in which he first created a name for himself, and which is possibly closest to his heart. Drawing up a map of Norway and Europe, the stories of Men No One Needs are full of desperation, love, hopelessness and comedy.
