3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 734 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A middle-aged man, Andreas Feldt, feeling that he is unable to communicate with his adult daughter over the course of a friendly lunch, announces on an inexplicable whim that he is going to get a divorce. Though his daughter is initially shocked, she quickly assimilates this information and all returns to normal. Faced with this virtual invisibility-for no matter what actions he takes, the world seems to take no notice-Andreas is cut adrift from the certainties of his life and forced to navigate through a society where it seems virtually everyone is only one loss of self-control away from an explosion of dissatisfaction and rage."--Page 4 of cover

The riveting story of two sisters' journey to the Islamic State and the father who tries to bring them home.

Making things right : the simple philosophy of a working life by Ole Thorstensen( Book )

4 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 322 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Making Things Right is the simple yet captivating story of a loft renovation, from the moment master carpenter and contractor Ole Thorstensen submits an estimate for the job to when the space is ready for occupation. As the project unfolds, we see the construction through Ole's eyes: the meticulous detail, the pesky splinters, the problem solving, patience, and teamwork required for its completion. Yet Ole's narrative encompasses more than just the fine mechanics of his craft. His labor and passion drive him toward deeper reflections on the nature of work, the academy versus the trades, identity, and life itself. Rich with descriptions of carpentry and process, Making Things Right is a warm and humorous portrayal of a tightknit working community, a story about the blood, sweat, and frustration involved in doing a job well and the joys in seeing a vision take shape

7 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pal has a shameful secret that has dragged him into huge debt, much bigger than he can ever hope to repay on his modest civil servant salary. He desperately doesn't want anybody to find out - especially not his teenage daughters or his ex-wife. It is time to get creative. Sixteen-year-old Sandra also has a secret. She is in love with the impossibly charming delinquent Daniel William, a love so strong and pure that nothing can come in its way. Not her concerned parents, not Jesus, and certainly not some other girl. Cecilie carries the biggest secret of them all, a baby growing inside her
Bare et menneske : roman by Kristine Næss( Book )

5 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bea Britt lives alone in her grandmother's house in west Oslo. Early one morning, she wakes to find a police hunt outside her window and drama unfolding on her TV. Volunteers are scouring the local woods looking for Emilie, a missing schoolgirl. Emilie's rucksack is found in Bea Britt's garden. But as her spiralling doubts and suspicions take over, is she a suspect, a witness or a potential second victim? The mystery of Emilie's disappearance and Bea Britt's story are intricately bound to the lives of two other women: Bea Britt's grandmother Cecilie, a troubled 1930s housewife whose marriage has broken down, and university student Beate, who is desperate for love but plagued by uncertainty. Only Human is a rich, urgent novel about family, enduring oneself and others, and what is needed when life wears thin. It lays bare the hopes, dreams, fears and failures of three infinitely human characters, and is delicately revealing of the choices that shape a human life and our quest for companionship and love

Karl Ove Knausgaard and fellow writer Fredrik Ekelund kick around thoughts and ideas on football, life, art and politics. Karl Ove Knausgaard is sitting at home in Skåne with his wife, four small children and a dog. He is watching football on TV and falls asleep in front of the set.

Fredrik loves games that end up 4-3 and teams that play beautiful football. He likes caipirinhas and Brazil. Home and Away is an unusual football book, in which the two authors use football and the World Cup in Brazil as the arena for reflections on life and death, art and politics, class and literature. What does it mean to be at home in a globalised world? This exchange of letters opens up new vistas and gives us stories from the lives of two creative writers. We get under their skin and have an insight into their relationships with modern times and football{u2019}s place in their lives, the significance the game has for people in general and the question: Was this the best football championship ever? --

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Inspector Kristian Wold is assigned to a year-old missing person's case. His superiors' instructions are clear: one last review before they shelve it.

Making things right : a master carpenter at work by Ole Thorstensen( Book )

5 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is, quite simply, the story of a loft conversion. It is also a book about work and identity, about collaboration and pride in skilled craftsmanship, and about what it means to make things with your hands in a consumerism-driven world. A master builder and carpenter with thirty years' experience, Thorstensen gives a matter-of-fact, reflective voice to the workers who construct our living spaces and our urban environment. He looks upon his tools as an important part of himself and as a reflection of his respect for his trade, and he addresses the gulf in understanding and communication between skilled craftsman and academic workers. From the moment of a client's phone call to their occupation of a newly constructed living space, Making Things Right tracks the project as it takes shape: the delicate negotiation to establish an optimum plan; the collaboration with a trusted team of specialist painters, plasterers, plumbers, electricians; the handling of materials; the blood, sweat and frustration involved in doing a job well. Why is it that manual skills are underestimated? After all, working with your hands gives you time to think. With all its practical detail, Making Things Right is the simple philosophy of a working life.--Provided by publisher
