The Summer Dad Turned Gay

Endre Lund Eriksen

”One of the fascinating things about Endre Lund Eriksen is that he takes difficult questions, wrings the maximum amount of embarrassment out of them, and ends up with a comic result”
Morten Olsen Haugen, Aftenposten

Arvidsjaur has a name he would like to keep secret, a dog he would like to keep shut in and a dad who has behaved extremely oddly ever since his mum made off with her a bit too personal trainer. And as if that wasn’t enough: this year he and his dad are to spend their holiday in an old, decrepit caravan in some deadbeat place far out in the country, where the sole attraction is Scandinavia’s most famous outside loo.

The only young person living there, Indiane, is already well into adolescence, even though she is only one day older than Arvidsjaur. She has a golden retriever that Arvidsjaur’s mongrel Waldo mates with every time he gets the chance. She also has a dad, Roger Berg. He goes around stripped to the waist a lot of the time and is completely gay.

And he also spends a lot of the time visiting Arvidsjaurs dad.

A lot can go wrong this summer. And the weather’s nothing to write home about either.
