Strong and wonderful reviews for The Other Name. Septology I II in Norway

September 8 2019

While Norwegian press is praising Septology I II, foreign sales is going on.This masterly work is now sold to 9 languages, Fosse will be the first Norwegian author published by one of the most prestigious French publishing houses, the editor says: “Even from the very first pages of The Other Name, I immediately knew that what I held in my hands was not just a singular text, but a masterpiece. While this monumental work is remarkable enough in synthesizing Fosse’s entire oeuvre as a playwright and as a novelist, its true wonder is in how it serves both a mesmeric journey through the mind of an artist, and en exploration of existential depths. It is my great honour to publish him with Christian Bourgois Éditeur.”

Drafts from the Mariana Trench by Ida Lødemel Tvedt is now sold to Kommode Verlag in Switzerland for publication in German translation.

The publisher, Annette Beger says:
“Ida Lødemel Tvedts Essays in Marianegropen are sensual, direct, courageous, witty, pictorial, energetic and highly sensitive. One gets the feeling of a story, like in a novel, even though the essays can also stand for themselves. Ida Lødemel Tvedt immediately captivated me with her unique perception and her ability to describe the “in-between” in a way in which I believe anyone can experience while reading this book.“ Congratulations dear Ida (Facebook) and Kommode Verlag!

Marianegropen
is so far sold to Klim in Denmark and to Kommode Verlag in Switzerland.
