Unquiet - A Novel

Author(s): Linn Ullmann

Fiction

A heartbreaking and darkly funny portrait of the intricacies of family life, Unquiet is a stunning, genre- bending meditation on time, memory, and language, on growing up and growing old.


"Ullmann has formed a book out of the explicit landmarks of her lived life. . . . The form of the book, however, isn't documentary, but, rather, fragmentary, the way memory is. . . . The clarity and lack of fetter is characteristic of Ullmann's way of seeing the world in prose." --Wyatt Mason, New York Times Magazine


" An] exquisite and warm novel. . . . Among Norway's contemporary writers, Ullmann might be the finest sentence by sentence." -- John Freeman, LitHub


"In its very form replicating the fitful progress of memory, it is written and translated . . . with care, insight, a keen sensitivity to the value of every word, and a generous embrace of human strength and weaknesses." -- Lydia Davis, Times Literary Supplement
