Bjørn Hatterud (b. 1977) is a successful writer, musician and art curator. He grew up in a small Norwegian rural community and lives today in Oslo. Against Normality is an export edition of two critically acclaimed books, Against Normality (Mot normalt) and Me, Mum and Mjøsa (Mjøsa rundt med mor). Hatterud writes of his life’s extraordinary trajectory, and how growing up as an outsider led him to forge a pathway into art, literature and non-mainstream culture – the spaces where he discovered identity and freedom.
