About the Book.
A lyrical and uncompromising debut novel from a highly acclaimed musician and artist who has achieved renown for the sharpness of her work and its sexual and political imagery.
Jo is in a strange new country for university, and having a more peculiar time than most. A house with no walls, a roommate with no boundaries, and a home that seems ever more alive. Jo’s sensitivity, and all her senses, become increasingly heightened and fraught, as the lines between bodies and plants, and dreaming and wakefulness, blur and mesh.
A complex, poetic and strange novel about bodies, sexuality, and the female gender.
About the Author.
Norwegian musician and writer Jenny Hval has honed an intellectual and uncompromising view on politics and sexuality in her prose and in her records, which include ‘Blood Bitch’, ‘Apocalypse, Girl’ and ‘Innocence is Kinky’. The New York Times calls her “A spiritual successor to Kate Bush, Arthur Russell and Björk”; NPR described ‘Blood Bitch’ as dealing in “all things hidden and dark and vital, and sometimes covered in blood.” Paradise Rot is the first of her books to appear in English.
