In the spring of 2020, everything changed.
These are Different Days (Dette er andre dagar) takes us back to the first lockdown, to homeschooling and the local forest, and life abruptly constricted. The book also takes giant leaps in space and time. It moves from a village nestled in the mountains to the permafrost of Alaska, between history and the future.
It gives us a perspective beyond the bubble formed by a country at a standstill. Because outside, the world, with its conflicts and crisis, is knocking.
