Lazy Days

Lazy Days

Written by: Loe, Erlend
Translated by: Bartlett, Don
Translated by: Shaw, Don

From the bestselling author of Doppler, a wry and very funny look at the pitfalls of human existence … and the charms of celebrity chef Nigella Lawson.

Aspiring playwright Bror Telemann loves all things British. His wife, Nina, loves everything German. So a family holiday at the foot of the Alps, south of Munich — which Bror believes to be the birthplace of Nazism — is bound to cause tension. Especially when Bror spends the whole time virtually stalking (and constantly fantasizing about) his greatest obsession, British chef Nigella Lawson.

Can Telemann continue to bear the pressure of his empty existence? Or will his long-suffering family be the first to snap?
