Skomsvold was shortlisted for IMPAC for her first novel The faster I walk, the smaller I am. It is translated into 27 languages and made into a successful play. Now she has written an extraordinary love story about a woman, two men and a child. 33 is a serious and miraculous novel about moments when everything changes. How do we dare to fall when we don’t know if there is anyone there to catch us?more
“"Opening a book by Skomsvold is truly an extraordinary experience. ... she is so incredibly talented and fills the story with the most peculiar allegories, delusions and nightmares. Expressed with such an original imagery it can take your breath away"” Dagbladet
Kristine NæssOnly Human
"Only human combines a crime mystery from the media with original portraits of women in three generations ... The novel questions our explanations and motives, even those we only provide for ourselves: Is it to see that one is only human, an insight into life's vulnerability and the limits of our cognition? Or can the victimization one invoke the contrary be a pretext, a protection against action and cognition? ... Only human consists of three highly individual and yet interconnected stories, which together gives us a surprisingly multidimensional view at the lives we live and how we emerge as people for one another "
