So brand new it is not even hot off the press yet, Jan Kjærstad 's upcoming novel 'Berge' is already sold to Denmark (Rosinante) and Sweden (Atlantis). This brave and highly original novel is Kjærstad at his absolute best. Without touching upon the July 22nd attacks in Norway, 'Berge' would not have been written without them. 'An extremely topical, exciting and thought-provoking novel about how people and societies react when the unthinkable strikes. About our need for quick explanations and simple solutions, which way too often turn out to be insufficient. 'Berge' demonstrates the possibilities of literature, and is an invitation to see nuances, think twice and open our minds in a time where induviduals and nation states move towards isolationism and self-sufficiency.' - Jacob Søndergaard, Publisher Rosinante Foto: Mimsy Møller

The New Yorker reviews ENCIRCLING by Carl Frode Tiller in their upcoming issue, stating: "What makes this novel, the first of a trilogy, extraordinary is the suspense: like the best mystery novels, it transforms the reader into an obsessive gumshoe." http://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2017/06/26/jane-austen-the-secret-radical-churchill-and-orwell-what-it-means-when-a-man-falls-from-the-sky-and-encircling Congratulations with more very well deserved praise in a long line of glowing reviews in the US, Carl Frode! A few more excerpts: “A wholly satisfying story about how unreliable narrators tell tales not just about events, but about our core emotions. A poised and effective Rashomon-style exploration of multiple psyches.”—Kirkus Reviews, starred review “Infused with stunning dimension. . . . Tiller skillfully parries David’s shifting character into uncertainty about the narrative itself.”—Publishers Weekly “In this deep character study, encapsulations of Jon, Arvid, and Silje are engrossing in their perceptions and ordinariness, while wonder about David gives the novel its subtle, baseline thread.”—Booklist “Encircling is the type of sustained psychological excavation mastered by the great Scandinavian writers. In stark, evocative prose, Tiller brilliantly exposes how we habitually enlist half-truths and false perceptions to prop up the master drama of our own lives.”—Toronto Star “Brilliantly structured. . . . Were this book not the first in a trilogy it still would stand powerfully on its own.”—New York Journal of Books
