Aliss at the Fire
by: Jon Fosse in Paperback, 107
Published 16-9-2010 by Dalkey Archive Press

Aliss at the Fire In her old house by the fjord, Signe lies on a bench and sees a vision of herself as she was more than twenty years earlier: standing by the window waiting for her husband Asle, on that terrible late November day when he took his rowboat out onto the water and never returned. Her memories widen out to include their whole life together, and beyond: the bonds of one family and their battles with implacable nature stretching back over five generations, to Asle's great-great-grandmother Aliss.
In Jon Fosse's vivid, hallucinatory prose, all these moments in time inhabit the same space, and the ghosts of the past collide with those who still live on.
Aliss at the Fire is a haunting exploration of love, ranking among the greatest meditations on marriage and loss.
