Eeg, Harald Rosenløw

Since making his debut as a writer in 1995 with his novel GLASSKÅR (which won him two important prizes for first novels), Harald Rosenløw Eeg (b 1970) has made a name for himself as an upbeat and unconventional author of outstanding literary daring. His writing is highly distinctive and has acquired a cadence that is all his own. In his quest for innovative metaphors and word combinations he challenges his readers, breaks established bounds and blazes new trails in the writing of books for young adults. He has subsequently written eight more books for young adults, two of them have won the Brage Prize, Vrengt and Yahtzee and one novel for adult readers KARMAKONGEN. Harald Rosenløw Eeg is also a musician and has a Master's degree in the history of religion.

Praise for Harald Rosenløw Eeg's writing:

"Harald Rosenløw Eeg is a rough diamond amongst Norwegian writers for young adults ...What makes Harald Rosenløw Eeg so special, is his unique intimacy with the people he describes. Eeg’s central characters are not your run-of-the-mill youngsters, they often define themselves as belonging outside the so-called normal group, either of their own free will or because external circumstances have lead them there.All the same they become universal, they could be you or me, standing there with their vulnerability clear for all to see"
