In modern Norwegian fiction Tomas Espedal’s paintings stands proud as uniquely own; it may be tricky to split the fiction from Espedal’s personal stories. Against Nature, a significant other quantity to Espedal's prior Against Art, is an exam of manufacturing unit paintings, love’s exertions, and the paintings of writing. Espedal dwells at the concept that operating is needed in an effort to reside in compliance with society, yet is that this usual? and the way can it's traditional whilst he's drawn towards very unlikely things—impossible love, books, myths, and taboos? he's drawn into the tales of Abélard and Héloïse, of younger Marguerite Duras and her chinese language lover, and shortly realizes that he, too, is popping right into a one who needs to decide to dwell opposed to nature.

“A masterpiece of literary understatement. every body who has lately been thirsting for a brand new, unexhausted realism, like water within the barren region, will love this book.”—Die Zeit, at the Norwegian edition
