Aug 20, 2019

Here are what the critics are saying:

“It is not often that one reads such an entertaining and revealing novel about class differences, literature and the literary environment. … In its striking, laugh-out-loud way, Middle Class Hero broadens the understanding of both the literature field and class differences in today’s Norway.” – Anne Merethe K. Prinos, Aftenposten

“Jens M. Johansson has written an extremely humorous novel that addresses several key issues and links them together in a highly original way. … There are many ways to the political novel. But few are as entertaining as in Middle Class Hero.” – Marta Norheim, NRK

“Funny, vulnerable and a very good novel about the great emptiness that can haunt our lives.” – 5/6 – Ørjan Greiff Johnsen, Adresseavisen
