The Looking-Glass Sisters

A tragic love story about two sisters who cannot live with or without each other.
Far out on the plains of northern Norway stands a house. It belongs to two middle-aged sisters. They seldom venture out and nobody visits. The older needs nursing and the younger keeps house. Then, one day, a man arrives…
Why Peirene chose to publish this book: ‘This is a tragedy about a woman who yearns for love but ends up in a painfully destructive conflict with her sister. It is also a story about loneliness – both geographical and psychological. Facing the prospect of a life without love, we fall back into isolating delusions at exactly the moment when we need to connect.’Meike Ziervogel
‘It’s a liberating feeling when you get a completely original story in your hands.’Dagbladet
‘Raw and dark and wonderfully different from anything else.’Dag og Tid
‘Innovative and sensuous.’Bergens Tidende
