POLITIKK POETIKK PRAKSIS: Vikaren er arbejderens erstatning

«I forbindelse med at Kristian Lundbergs Yarden i fjor kom i en norsk oversettelse ved Trude Marstein, inviterte vi et knippe skribenter til å skrive om boken fra ulike perspektiver. Men tiden gikk og hele prosjektet rant ut i sanden. Nå når Lundbergs siste roman, og frittstående oppfølger til Yarden, Och allt skall vara kärlek, også har blitt oversatt til norsk, benytter vi anledningen til å publisere en av tekstene vi dessverre ikke fikk publisert i fjor. Den er skrevet av Malte Roed Lunden, som blant annet har designet den danske oversettelsen av L’insurrection qui vient, og skrevet om det tomme arbeidet og andre samtidige problemer i Information.»

The Great American Novel

A couple of years ago, I was asked to give a talk about “The American Novel Today.” It wasn’t my first choice of topic, frankly, partly because I read as few contemporary novels as possible, partly (here we get into cause and effect) because most...

En tredje vei (Stig Sæterbakken, Essays i utvalg)

«Å lure ordløst i utkanten av noe. Det er ikke sikkert at dette kan bli til en tekst, og denne usikkerheten sleper skribenten med seg som skitt under sålene, denne dirringen er tekstens forutsetning.»
