NORLA has again selected their prioritized titles in Norway for this spring. Eight titles within Norwegian fiction, non-fiction and children’s and YA. We are proud to say that two of the chosen titles are from Northern Stories.

Mar 24, 2021

Within fiction NORLA has selected Ingebjørg Berg Holm’s RAGING BEAR. A psychological thriller set in Bergen and on Svalbard, with three people fighting over the right to be together with a child. The book was pre-empted by Le Cherche Midi in France and has just sold to Carbonio in Italy.

Here’s a video of Ingebjørg Berg Holm presenting the book.

In nonfiction the selected title is Siri Helle’s THE HANDMADE TALE. A story about building a small, but absolutely necessary house on your own and feeling an intense joy of doing it by yourself. Granta secured World English rights and Rowohlt got the German rights.

Here’s a video of Siri Helle presenting her book.
