You can't Disappoint your Best Friend and at the Same Time be a Good Singer

Hiorthøy, Kim: Du kan ikke svikte din beste venn og bli god til å synge samtidig


Kim Hiorthøy made his literary debut with a collection of brief texts written cunningly, with surplus energy and engaging humour. Whilst the text brilliantly describes people who often fail, the drawings show a number of rooms and landscapes with hardly any people at all.

For those who have followed Kim Hiorthøy with interest from the time when his droll and naive illustrations started to appear in various publications in the Trondheim area, it is a pleasure to announce that this little book functions according to expectations.

Praise for You can't Disappoint your Best Friend and at the Same Time be a Good Singer:

"To excess, the book is even equipped with a jacket similar to worn out sacking wallpaper, and completely missing page numbers"

"Kim Hiorthøy has understood what the art of literature is"
(Dag og tid)

”Happy and good”
(Hamar Arbeiderblad)

”This is one way, in few words, to say something about our life-conditions in today’s urban society”
