The Christmas mystery by Jostein Gaarder( Book )

19 editions published between 1996 and 2007 in English and held by 614 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the corner of a dusty old bookstore, Joachim discovers a magic Advent calendar. When he opens the first door on December 1, a small piece of paper falls out. On it is the beginning of a story about a little girl named Elisabet. One December many years ago, Elisabet follows a white lamb straight out of Joachim's town and on to an amazing journey. She travels back through time and down through Europe to be present - along with the Wise Men and the shepherds, and other familiar figures - at the birth of Jesus. Each of the twenty-four windows in the calendar hides another chapter in Elisabet's story, along with illustrations. Through the mysterious calendar, Joachim and his parents get a new sense of the Nativity story and the meaning of Christmas. But they also start to wonder: Who was this Elisabet and where is she now? On Christmas Eve, all the pieces of this puzzle come together
Palace of ice by Tarjei Vesaas( Book )

21 editions published between 1966 and 2018 in English and held by 593 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In winter, the black ice cracks like a gunshot across the lake, growing thicker and darker every night. Nearby, a frozen waterfall transforms into a fantastic, baroque structure with dripping buttresses, flying spurs of ice and translucent, sparkling towers. The schoolchildren call it the ice palace. When eleven-year-old Unn arrives in the village, she avoids the other children- she lives alone with her aunt and nurses a secret grief. But her boisterous classmate Siss refuses to be ignored and the two girls strike up an intense friendship. That is, until Unn decides to explore the Ice Palace on her own, squeezing deep into its beautiful but chilling inner chambers. When Unn doesn't return home, Siss must struggle to cope with the loss of her friend, without succumbing to an ice palace of her own making

Klassikere) ISBN 82-05-24466-9 I romanen "Jeg" fra 1959 utforsker Johan Borgen igjen grensetilstander og grenser; mellom identiteter, mellom det tilsynelatende og det faktiske, mellom liv og død. Man møter Matias Roos som bryter opp fra huset i skogen, som kanskje dreper et barn, men som frikjennes og flykter videre. Ved grensen stopper han opp og tar inn på det merkelige vertshuset Nobiskro - stedet hvor alt virker gjenkjennelig og ingenting forandrer seg. En roman omidentitet, soning og straff. Sist utgitt i 1978
The boat in the evening by Tarjei Vesaas( )

3 editions published between 2003 and 2019 in English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Tarjei Vesaas's final work before his death, this episodic novel drifts between dream-like abstraction and vivid description of seemingly ordinary yet heightened scenes of the Norwegian countryside. The first story finds a young boy and his father clearing a logging road deep in snow, as their surroundings give way to an expression of power and resignation between the two. Commentary on human behavior continues to meet the quiet power of the natural world in many of the sketches: a narrator watches, enthralled by the convergence of a flock of cranes in a marsh; a girl stands in the snow, waiting for someone who does not come; a drowning man is pushed downstream, towards his eventual rescue. The more abstract vignettes rhythmically ponder questions of the uncertainty of being, Vesaas's hypnotic prose an invitation to examine the telling, and sometimes disturbing, cycles of nature. The many overlapping, semi-autobiographical sketches of The Hills Reply relate a deep appreciation for the complexity of the human condition, nature, and relationships"--

The bridges by Tarjei Vesaas( Book )

3 editions published between 1969 and 2015 in English and held by 6 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
