9781841956725: Na´ve. Super

Troubled by an inability to find any meaning in his life, the 25-year-old narrator of this deceptively simple novel quits university and eventually arrives at his brother's New York apartment.

In a bid to discover what life is all about, he writes lists. He becomes obsessed by time and whether it actually matters. He faxes his meteorologist friend. He endlessly bounces a ball against the wall. He befriends a small boy who lives next door.

He yearns to get to the bottom of life and how best to live it.
Funny, friendly, enigmatic and frequently poignant - superbly naive.

About the Author:

Erlend Loe, born in Trondheim (Norway) in 1969, has appeared on the stage and worked in film and video production. He has been a critic for the Worker's Newspaper, worked in a psychiatric hospital and been a substitute teacher. Nave.Super. is his first adult book although he has written six books for children.

Review:

It is fascinating, how much depth this young author can convey in a simple language - a major talent. (Oldenburgische Volkzeitung, Germany)

Loe certainly has some of Salinger's lightness of touch, and often comic voice of his unnamed narrator recalls Salinger's Holden Caulfield. A charming debut novel. (The Times)

A book overflowing with creative talent on just about every page. Well calculated naivety. (Dagbladet, Norway)

it displays a canny lightness of touch and a great deal of charm. An effortlessly hip and savvy antidote to the rainy day blues. (Sleazenation)
