Lars saabye christensen. Translated from the Norwegian by Don Bartlett. The closest I got was the picture of the naked woman in the medical book, but I think the photo had been touched up, at any rate, the twat was just a smooth surface, there didn’t seem to be any hair on it, but there wasn’t a crack to be seen, either, and I presumed they couldn’t show that sort. of woman in a family medical book.

Saabye Christensen has neatly given every chapter the name of a Beatles song. Don Bartlett's expert translation masterfully captures the author's distinctive style. He has said that "Penny Lane" inspired him to become a novelist, while "Strawberry Fields" set him off on his course as a poet. Even though the setting is unmistakably Oslo, and it serves as a social document of a city that was something of a backwater at the time, the backdrop to a teenager's rites of passage had by the 1960s become internationalised.

Lars Saabye Christensen is a gifted storyteller, a narrator who is imaginative, but equally down to earth. His heroes possess a good deal of self-irony. Indeed, critics have drawn parallels with the black humour of Woody Allen. But be Lars Saabye Christensen is a gifted storyteller, a narrator who is imaginative, but equally down to earth.

In The Model, Lars Saabye Christensen makes certain that Scotland Yard historians are not disappointed. In doing so, of course, his clues blind him as well as them to what the novel is about. Peter Wihl is a painter preparing a retrospective of what has become a middling career, after an early, initial success. This is, if you will, the model of the artist (which gives the book its title), who in being true to himself alienates himself from middle class society. The artist sacrifices everything for his art the story goes. Although Wihl undergoes the operation, he tells himself, not to be a burden to his family, he also knows he has done so to remain an artist.
