  • In the intriguingly titled Novel 11, Book 18 Norwegian writer Dag Solstad serves up another helping of his wan and wise almost-comedy.

    Geoff Dyer, Observer
  • He doesn’t write to please other people. Do exactly what you want, that’s my idea...the drama exists in his voice, in his comments and views, and that works, it helps connect the reader to the story

    Lydia Davis
  • Bleak, funny, brilliantly observed

    The Times
  • Unexpectedly moving...a wry, fantastic book

    Books of The Year, Irish Times
  • Brilliant and subtle... What matters is Solstad's dedicated application to the mysteries of human conduct and relations that his town treasurer illustrates

  • The existential novel is alive and well... Solstad has a dry and bleakly comic style

    Daily Telegraph
  • Solstad is a masterful investigator of human thought and behaviour, and, like the inside of anyone’s head, this novel is in turns funny, mournful, quizzical and insightful. And a real pleasure to read.

    Jane Graham, Big Issue
