Rita Becomes a Writer
Rita moves to Sweden to attend a writing school. There she will meet people who don’t know anything about her, and when she comes home she will have become mature and confident. Nothing goes the way she planned. With this novel Kristine Næss creates a main character that the reader won’t forget as easily. This is a comic, ironic, touching and concisely drawn portrait of a young woman who is her own worst enemy, but who still doesn’t intend to give up as easily.
With her personal, reflective and spontaneously comic style Kristine Næss shows herself as a distinctive writer who explores issues of idenity in a unique and original voice.
