About the Author

LARS SAABYE CHRISTENSEN has published a number of novels, poetry and short story collections, his breakthrough coming in 1984 with Beatles, one of Norway's bestselling books still. He received the Nordic Council Literature Prize for The Half Brother in 2001. He has also received the Riverton Prize, the Critics' Prize, the Brage Prize, the Norwegian Booksellers' Prize, the Dobloug Prize and the Norwegian Reader's Prize. His novels have now been published in 36 countries.


Saabye Christensen's writing is rich and elegant, and always easy to read. Burlesque humour that borders on farce, with an underlying layer of melancholy. From the outset, the reader might feel that the book flows a bit too easily, but before you notice the writer has grabbed hold of you and doesn't let go until the last page has been turned * Adresseavisen *
Eminent is a big word. Even so, it comes to mind assessing the second volume of this memoir novel, Echoes of the City . . . Lars Saabye Christensen is a master storyteller who is both sharp and affectionate. * Weekendavisen *
I just have to repeat how impressed I am with Lars Saabye Christensen. It's like he's just sitting there, almost improvising on his keyboard and suddenly he's composed yet another masterpiece * Dagbladet *
A book filled with sorrow and wistfulness for a time torn between faith in the future and the community's need for social control. It's Lars Saabye Christensen on home turf. It's the author at his best * Bok365 *
