Because of the way Gulliksen plays with gender roles in this book, I’ve found it important to note that this is The Story of a Marriage; not The Story of THE Marriage. …
Beautiful, infuriating and sad, Gulliksen tells a story of a marriage that is like (I assume) all the marriages: different from others. Where there’s space, freedom, sex, openness, tenderness and love. And yet the man seems to be cursed or what else could be the reason that he constantly dooms the relationship to fail? And then it does.
«As stark and beautiful as a winter forest, The Story of a Marriage dares to explore betrayal with empathy and kindness. Geir Gulliksen writes like a disillusioned bard and the result is lyrical, hypnotic, and impossible to put down.
This short, emotionally taut novel by veteran Norwegian author Gulliksen is narrated by Jon, whose marriage to Timmy has cratered.
