Jon Fosse said farewell to theory early in his career, choosing poetry, fiction, and drama as his mediums of choice. Here, however, in a selection from his two books of essays, we see just how incisive a critic and memoirist he can be. Not only including a generous portion of Fosse's writing on literature and theater--including the irresistable Thomas Bernhard and His Grandfather--this collection also includes such personal essays such as My Dear New Norwegian, Old Houses, and He Who Didn't Want to Become a Teacher.
