Description: It's as if Wallace Stevens had been Norwegian, writing in prose and born fifty years later. Erlend Loe's deceptively simple novel is a highly original meditation on existence and a strange mixture of wisdom and naivety. Troubled by an inability to find any meaning in his life, the 25-year-old first-person narrator quits his MA course at university in a bid to discover a raison d'etre. He recounts a series of anecdotes, which culminate in a trip to stay with his brother in New York. He writes lists. He becomes obsessed by time and whether it actually matters. He yearns to get to the bottom of life and how best to live it.
