This life or the next

Demian Vitanza: Dette livet eller det neste A groundbreaking work of literary fiction.

A subdued explosion that sends shrapnel in all directions - to journalism, to literary fiction, to immigration policy, to criticism of religion.

- Morgenbladet

The by far best book the reviewer has read about foreign fighters going to Syria.

- Dagbladet, 6 out of 6 stars

Reminds us that art offers contrasts, details and nuances we would otherwise have missed. That is Demian Vitanzas great achievement in this book.

- Klassekampen.

Based on more than hundred hours of conversation, this is the story of a young man driven as much by idealism as by his emerging faith, who constantly questions and doubts the actions that eventually puts him at the Syrian border in the middle of the night.

Combined with the literary sensibility of one of Norways best young authors, this novel, in addition to shining new light on one of the most urgent issues of todays Europe, is also a timeless work of literature about memory, truth and the way we present and justify our own stories.
