A Sudden Liberating Thought

Kjell Askildsen

A Sudden Liberating Thought consists of 13 short stories, from the debut book From Now On I’ll Walk You All the Way Home (1953), Side Scenes (1966), Nothing for Nothing (1982) and Thomas F’s Last Notes to the Public (1983). The title short story A Sudden Liberating Thought was first published in this collection. Together, these short stories create an impression of one of the greatest prose writers in Norwegian post war literature.
