Chrysantemum

Rune Christiansen

Winner of the Riksmål Prize 2009

In Chrysantemum we follow Agnes Løv, a woman in her mid-thirties, who has settled down alone in a city she doesn’t know to write her dissertation. She has grown up with her father, and when he dies and she has a chance encounter with a young, intense woman in an airplane, certain changes in her sober, controlled life are quietly set in motion.

Chrysantemum is a playful and beautifully written novel dealing with transformation and devotion in an elegant way.
