Armand is a diplomat rising through the ranks of the Norwegian foreign office, but he's caught between his public duty to support foreign wars in the Middle East and his private disdain for Western intervention. He hides behind knowing, ironic statements, which no one grasps and which change nothing. Armand's son joins the Norwegian SAS to fight in the Middle East, despite being specifically warned against such a move by his father, and this leads to catastrophic, heartbreaking consequences. Told exclusively in footnotes to an unwritten book, this is Solstad's radically unconventional novel about how we experience the passing of time: how it fragments, drifts, quickens, and how single moments can define a life. … (more)

En intressant form, detta, med fotnoter till en tänkt roman. Solstad lyckas, det blir fascinerande, och hans språk känns igen från andra romaner, tex "T. Singer". Han nyttjar romanens form i det närmaste till fulländning och texterna flödar i sin ordrikhet obemärkt (nästan) från tanke till tanke.
Och detta flöde är oftast en ren fröjd att följa.
Men vad beskriver alla dessa ord? Ja, att vi kanske måste ta den internationella diplomatin på mindra blodigt allvar äe vi gör, kanske. Det kässn ju fantastiskt aktuellt nu, med Wikileaks senaste publikationer. Solstad hade redan genomskådat det, eller hur? ( )
