The father of a family has serious neighbour problems. A partner feels lifeless. A refugee loses his memory. A drug-addict lives for the kicks. A young man is afraid to sleep. A skier freaks out.
The stories in All my demons often arises out of everyday situations, but the fragile facades of existence soon start to show cracks. The sinister side starts to trickle out. The idyll grows grotesque. Apparent friendliness turns into linguistic and physical violence. In his first collection of short stories, Nikolaj Frobenius focuses on the paradoxes that lie as an undercurrent in people’s lives in well-regulated, modern Norway – and he paints the unrest of individuals in a powerful narrative style.
