About the Event

Join us in September as we read Trilogy (2015), a series of three novellas by the Jon Fosse.  The collection was translated by May-Brit Akerholt in 2022.  Trilogy received the Nordic Council's Prize for Literature in 2015, and Jon Fosse received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2023.

From the publisher:

Trilogy is Jon Fosse’s critically acclaimed, luminous love story about Asle and Alida, two lovers trying to find their place in this world. Homeless and sleepless, they wander around Bergen in the rain, trying to make a life for themselves and the child they expect. Through a rich web of historical, cultural, and theological allusions, Fosse constructs a modern parable of injustice, resistance, crime, and redemption. Consisting of three novellas (Wakefulness, Olav’s Dreams, and Weariness), Trilogy is a haunting, mysterious, and poignant evocation of love.

You can purchase the book here.
