Ketil Bjørnstad

I finished reading To Music by Ketil Bjørnstad the other day.

It's mixing a realistic presentation of an young aspiring pianist and his chaotic life before his carrier starts with a sneaky, subtle weirdiness, a bit like Twin Peaks; very unnerving but at the same time funny. Of course, once I started on it, it was impossible to put down. For any interested in their general health condition, I recommend staying away. Seriously.

It makes me wonder what I look for in a book when I go to the library. My previous book was by Alistair MacLean, which today requires an humorous attitude towards his anachronistic a-man-is-man world views to read, at least for me.
