A man sits in a bar, struggling to remember a name which keeps slipping away from him. He tries to recall the encounter with a woman who has partly disappeared from memory, and whose name mixes with the names of a book he is reading. He might have talked to her recently, but it might also be a long time since they met. The narrative moves from the bar to an aircraft cabin to an operating table and to an apartment he most has most probably never visited. In detailed, flowing prose, Vibeke Tandberg explores the unclear boundaries between memory and forgetting, and between your own and other’s memory.
Eurydice Anal is a distinctive, enigmatic novel, where danger arises from things that have been forgotten which suddenly flare up, before fading away.
