When the actress Elena Vendrakovic at the age of 69 is fired from The Slovakian National Theatre, she decides to take action with Bratislava as her stage. Vendrakovic is an inspired and reckless novel about a woman who will not be defined by age.
“A vital and strong novel … Ingebrigtsen has without a doubt become one of the most striking and characteristic voices on the Norwegian literary scene.” Adresseavisen
“The author portrays a human being who must be outside his own personal experience in most essential areas, and he does it with excellence. Just as brilliantly he handles the material through dramatic passages … This all results in the organic universe which Ingebrigtsen has composed with this great novel, where the language is a bull’s eye from the first sentence, where everything is right and nothing seems stupid, clumsy or stuck on” Dag og Tid
”A solid portrait of a woman… a splendid and appealing novel” Stavanger Aftenblad
“Convincing novel … 31 year old Ingebrigtsen makes a solid effort in portraying a believable 69 year old woman” Dagsavisen
