Trilogy – Jon Fosse

Trilogy Jon Fosse Book

A beautiful love story about Asle and Alida.

These three books (sold as a trilogy) made a big impact on me.

The story of these books takes place in Bjørgvin (old name for Bergen), and Jon Fosse masterly combines birth, murder, hate and love. The story can remind one a bit about the Nativity of Jesus, telling a story about light and darkness, about art and life.

“Through a rich web of historical, cultural, and theological allusions, Fosse constructs a modern parable of injustice, resistance, crime, and redemption. Consisting of three novellas (Wakefulness, Olav’s Dreams, and Weariness), Trilogy is a haunting, mysterious, and poignant evocation of love, for which Fosse received The Nordic Council’s Prize for Literature in 2015.”
