Omslag odyssevs åre

Welcome to Geir Angell Øygarden

March 13 2018

Welcome to the brilliant author Geir Angell Øygarden! “Odysseus’s Oar” is a captivating, narrative non -fiction, praised by the critics and one of NORLA’s Selected Titles this spring. “Prose marked by its unpredictability and wit, and a framework of understanding quite without parallel in Norwegian literature” wrote Tom Egil Hverven in Klassekampen. A great pleasure to follow this original book out in the world!
