Simply the most raw and intereresting piece of literature I have read in a very long time
– VG, 6 out of 6 stars
Three cities. Three encounters. Three stories.
In Stories of Solace, Ida Hegazi Høyer examines how new encounters – with places or people – challenge who we are, how we look upon ourselves, how we want to be looked upon. And how fast two perfect strangers can form an intimate relationship, not knowing wheth- er the other one is dangerous or life-saving.
A nameless woman travels alone to three European cities. In each city, she meets and starts a relationship with a man, a woman and a young boy. With intense, dark and intelligent prose, the three chamber plays are, in a subtle way, also linked to the most crucial political and human issues of today’s Europe.
Never irrelevant, never boring … one of our most interesting authors, regardless of age
