Set in the Norwegian countryside over the course of one summer, The Birds tells the story of forty-year-old Mattis, who has mental disabilities and lives in a small house near a lake with his sister Hege, who ekes out a modest living knitting sweaters. From time to time Hege encourages her brother to find work to ease their financial burdens, but Mattis's attempts to work at the surrounding farms always end in failure and disgrace.

The bridges by Tarjei Vesaas( Book )

35 editions published between 1966 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 545 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'The Bridges' describes the changing relationships between three adolescents-- an unmarried mother who has drowned her newborn child and the girl and boy who befriend her. Their individual reactions to the tragedy and their efforts to communicate with each other-- to build bridges-- form the central theme of the narrative. As strange, unsettling, and as memorable, as Vesaas's masterpieces 'The Ice Palace' and 'The birds,' this remarkable work ... conveys the compassion, insight and lyrical power of a great Scandinavian novel."--Back cover

The Boat in the Evening is the last book by the acclaimed Norwegian writer Tarjei Vesaas. On its publication in Scandinavia it was quickly acclaimed as the culmination of Vesaas's work, and placed its author for the third time among the finalists for the Nobel Prize.

The themes of The Seed are violence and guilt. A maniac visiting an island murders a girl. He is pursued by the islanders and killed by the victim's brother.

Vessas's graphic evocation of nature and his parallel between the violence of savage animals and humanity make this a book of unusual literary distinction
