The New Season contains lots of drama, is full of the sea, death and love, humans, and pets. The novel is moving and evocative. The mixture of realism and something close to apocalyptic is something truly unique. The world is changing, sometimes in ways we can barely imagine. The starting point for The New Season is traditionally Norwegian and classic, but the novel is simultaneously innovative – it explores how well-known landscapes are changed by the times we live in. All of this viewed through the gazes of two beautiful humans doing what they can to survive.
