Little Lord, Paperback / softback Book

Little Lord Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Wilfred - alias Little Lord - is a privileged young man growing up in upper-class society in Kristiania (Oslo) during the halcyon days before the First World War.

Beneath the strikingly well-adjusted surface, however, runs a darker current; he is haunted by the sudden death of his father and driven to escape the stifling care of his mother for risky adventures in Kristiania's criminal underworld.

The two sides of his personality must be kept separate, but the strain of living a double life threatens breakdown and catastrophe.

This best-selling novel by one of Norway's most talented twentieth-century writers is also an evocative study of a vanished age of biplanes, variety shows, and Viennese psychiatry.
