Forms of grief

Tomas Espedal has spent large portions of his literary career writing about dealing with grief. In several books and forms, (biography, epistolic, the diary and the novel), he has worked to formulate a connection between literature and bereavement. Espedal meets British Max Porter in a conversation about how literature, through its various sub-genres and styles, can find a way to communicate grief and loss. The authors are in conversation with Ellen Sofie Lauritzen.

Tomas Espedal

Espedal skal være kjent for de fleste lesende nordmenn. Bergensforfatteren har høstet gode kritikker i flere land, og senest i USA hvor bøkene Imot kunsten og Imot naturen, nå går sin seiersgang. Espedals kunstferdige prosastil og hans såre skildringer av livet som alenepappa og det litterære miljøet i Bergen har satt en ny standard for norske romaner. Han er en engasjert debattant, og ofte vanskelig å definere innenfor et litterært felt.  More >
