Stone to stone was received with outstanding reviews, with several critics praising Fosse’s ability to speak about the human condition, and bringing often grand question of existence into everyday language.

Fosse characterizes this as a small effortless collection of poetry. In addition to the 39 poems, there is a Psalm, Night Psalm, which is included in the new Norwegian psalmbook.

A wonder of a little book. The collection comprises 39 poems and one psalm, and every single verse is a source for years of quiet meditation.

Jon Fosse is widely considered one of the world’s most important living writers. Born in 1959 in Strandebarm, a small village in the western part of Norway, he lives today in the Grotten, an honorary residence, as well as in Hainburg, Austria, and Frekhaug, Norway.

Fosse has received numerous prizes, both in Norway and internationally, and he is mentioned increasingly often as a likely contender for the Nobel Prize. He is currently finishing a major seven-volume work of what he calls “slow prose”: Septology, to be published in three volumes in 2019, 2021, and 2023.
