About this title


Wilfred Sagen, a young boy growing up in pre-World War I Norway, cleverly hides his schizophrenic tendencies from his parents

From the Back Cover:

In this book, the author demonstrates his belief that our lives tend toward schizophrenia. Wilfred Sagen at fourteen is still a perfectly turned out, impeccably behaved 'Little Lord Fauntleroy' to his family, but to his teachers he is a disruptive enigma and, to a pack of Oslo street urchins, an instigator of crime.
