Anna Louisa Millisdotter has her own room and a bank account full of money - what more could a 70-year-old want? Anna Louisa is ripped from her quiet retirement by an article in the country's second biggest newspaper. The author is the same woman who once persuaded her to go into public exile. … LES MER The woman who claimed to have been lured into prostitution by her academic supervisor. Former student Catherine Wolf, now a professor in Anna Louisa's old faculty. And suddenly the game is on for Anna Louisa. She decides to show her face in public again - for the first time in 20 years. A Room of Ones Own (Et eget rom) is priceless feminist satire, a chamber play with room for both bitcoins and saloon guns. 'Lotta Elstad writes like a love child of Dag Solstad and Vigdis Hjorth: Intellectual, engaged and witty.' DAG OG TID 'The first three quarters of A Room of Ones Own (Et eget rom) is a solid, intellectual and entertaining novel. It is when Anna Louisa is on her way to the eastern side of Oslo that the tempo picks up and the existential aspect of the novel comes into its own. The conclusion is a painful and memorable punchline.' MORGENBLADET 'In light, satirical style and with a precise depiction of distinctly Norwegian societal structures, Elstad explores the need to find a place in the world and give life meaning, and how banal the outcome of this struggle can be no matter how strong the fighting spirit once was.' KLASSEKAMPEN 'A cornucopia filled with social analysis. Just like Elstads debut The Studio Apartment, A Room of Ones own is a novel with political edge. Anna Louisa is bitter at life, fed up with a public filled with idiots, and ready to take them on. Elstads tight, concise writing makes this an entertaining read.' STAVANGER AFTENBLAD 'This years most entertaining novel! Because of the many angles of the novel, and the density of the message, this is a book that can be read more than once. You will discover new things that again will make you laugh and/or think.' ROSE-MARIES LITTERATURBLOGG LES MINDRE
