The Hills Reply
An intensely graceful novel recounting scenes of the Norwegian countryside from one of Norway's most beloved 20th-century writers. 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 many overlapping, semi-autobiographical vignettes of The Hills Reply relate a deep appreciation for the complexity of the human condition, nature, and relationships.
