Women at Night
It’s a light summer evening in Oslo and the female narrator has just been giving a lecture in the art of novel writing. She is in the center of Oslo and on her way home when she stops a cab. As she gets into the car, she gets the distinct sense that something is wrong, and as the plot unfolds, her worst fears are confirmed. Women at Night is a novel about courage, what it is, how you can lose it and how you can gain it again. It explores the strengths and limits involved in having a female body, and implicitly, it is also about the strengths and limits of language; about how narratives can be misunderstood and how language can backfire.
