'The best Norwegian novel ever' Karl Ove KnausgaardMattis doesn't understand much about the world. He doesn't understand why others call him simple. Or why his sister Hege, who has cared for him in their peaceful lakeside cottage since they were young, gets so frustrated. But he knows that the woodcock which starts to fly over their house every day is a sign something is about to change. And when Hege falls in love, disrupting their familiar existence and unbalancing his thoughts, he decides he must face his fate.

Translated by Torbjorn Stoverud and Michael Barnes 'A masterpiece' Literary Review'Mattis, absurd and boastful, but also sweet, pathetic and even funny, is shown with great insight' Sunday Times
