This is the story of Mattis, a mentally handicapped man who lives with and is cared for by his older sister, Hege. Mattis cannot make sense of his tangled thoughts, frightening apparitions, surges of emotion and clever insights. When a travelling lumberjack attracts Hege's affections, the disruption is too much for Mattis to bear. This classic Norwegian novel sensitively captures the mystic command of the natural world, the prison of unfulfilled time and the fragility of the human mind. Sparse, poetic and contemplative.
