Shhh

Hanna spends every summer at her uncle with the cousin Siv, who is her age, and older Metter. But Siv has changed compared to last year. She is no longer interested in counting crabs and bugs they catch; she is instead interested in her older sister Mette’s adventures: boys, going out and parties.

Going Nowhere

The title reflects not only a hard stance but also a variedly explored theme of economic migration, a more comfortable kind, one which leaves on a plane with a relatively full belly so it can attempt to make a picture-perfect life for itself...

LA SUPERBA

Award winning and much praised novel by the new European literary star. Written as a series of letters and notes addressed to the unnamed reader to whom the narrator reports about his life in Genova, where he made his permanent residence out of “desire to fulfil his eternal dream about the enviously rich and carefree Mediterranean life among real, authentic people here, in this medieval labyrinth.

Irmina

Graphic novel Irmina, based on the life of the author’s grandmother, tells a story about a young woman and her gradual capitulation to Nazi ideology.

Wild Woman

Wild Woman is an anti-love story, set against a backdrop of economic hardship. Told through the undiluted language of thought and mania, the twists and turns of internal dialogue are brought alive by a narrator determined to find her true voice. It is a warning against letting life slip...

Exit West

Saeed, a sensitive and somewhat restrained young man, and Nadia, self-aware, independent and free-spirited young woman, meet one night at “the class on corporative identity and product branding” in a town which has been “teetering on the edge of abyss”, at the edge of war.

Alpha

Alpha lives alone in Abidjan, Côte d'Ivoire ever since his wife and son left for Paris without a visa. He has heard nothing from them since. Desperate, he decides to leave everything behind in order to find them. He can take different routes to Europe, but he faces possibly years of illegal travelling.
