The Absence of Music

Rune Christiansen

The Absence of Music is a both open and enigmatic novel about the resources of memory and understanding, where the different stories and fragments of memory form associative connections between past and present, between father and son, woman and man. The Absence of Music is also a Bildungsroman where the irreconcilable lives side by side with the tolerant.

But above all The Absence of Music is a novel about becoming a person, about losing and regaining your identity in a universe where nothing is ever resolved once and for all.
