New Hardbacks

'A kind of surrealist writer' (Haruki Murakami), who 'doesn't write to please other people' (Lydia Davis). T Singeris the new novel in English from one of Norway's most celebrated writers, proving 'good literature makes us wiser about life, ourselves and other people' (Dagbladet).

Singer, a thirty-four-year-old recently trained librarian, arrives by train in the small town of Notodden to begin a new and anonymous life. He falls in love with Merete, a ceramicist, and moves in with her and her young daughter. After a few years together, the relationship starts to falter, and as the couple is on the verge of separating a car accident prompts a dramatic change in Singer's life.

T Singeris a brilliant and heartbreaking novel about indomitable loneliness, laying bare the existential questions of life in Solstad's classic, bleakly comic style.
