Aliss at the fire by Jon Fosse ( Book )
4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Slim, mournful tale of loss and memory in a coastal Norwegian town, first published in Norway in 2003. The novel opens with a series of shifts in perspective, time and identity that hint at the experimentation that follows. We immediately meet Signe, an aging woman living alone near a fjord. The story is set in 2002, but Signe is soon thinking back to 1979 and the day her husband, Asle, died while boating in the waters
Melancholy by Jon Fosse ( Book )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Lars Hertervig is a provincial young Norwegian from a poor Quaker background, studying art in Germany and prone to crippling insecurities, sexual obsessions, and terrifying hallucinations. In prose as hypnotic as Beckett's or Berhard's--but earthier and funnier--the novel describes a single day of crisis and its repercussions, years later for Lars himself and a century later for a writer inspired by Hertervig's vision. Melancholy takes us into a painter's fragile consciousness, vulnerable to everything but therefore uniquely able to see its beauty and its light

Schwester by Jon Fosse ( Book )
3 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in German and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Von der Einsamkeit des Unverstandenen: Ein vier Jahre alter Junge will die Welt an einem norwegischen Fjord, wo er mit seinen Eltern lebt, erkunden. Innerhalb von wenigen Tagen erfährt er, wie gross und stark die Macht der Erwachsenen ist, die ihn vor "gefährlichen" Abenteuern beschützen wollen. Immer wieder versucht er, zusammen mit seiner dreijährigen Schwester die Grenzen seiner Freiheit auszureizen, immer wieder wird er daran gehindert, diese Erfahrung zu machen. Aber dabei erkennt er auch die Liebe zu seiner kleinen Schwester und wie wichtig ihm das Gefühl des Geborgenseins in dieser Beziehung ist. Eine schöne Geschichte mit eindrücklich ruhigen Bildern und - wie ein Kontrast - Sätzen mit z.T. über 300 Wörtern. Fosse reiht Hauptsatz um Hauptsatz ohne Punkt aneinander, manchmal ein ganzes Kapitel lang. Die Sprache bleibt aber so schlicht und klar, dass Kinder mühelos folgen können. Ganz zu Recht wurde dieses Buch in Norwegen als bestes Kinderbuch des Jahres ausgezeichnet. Sehr empfehlenswert. Ab 6 Jahren, ausgezeichnet, Urs Geissbühler
