MacLehose Press

Interview With Roy Jacobsen

Child Wonder, a dazzling coming of age novel set in 1960s Oslo, was published by MacLehose Press this month in a translation by Don Barlett with Don Shaw. Visiting London two weeks ago, Jacobsen agreed to be the first author to be interviewed on film for the MacLehose website: the first of many. He talks about the social context of the novel, Norway’s transformation from one of Europe’s poorest countries to one of its richest, how he began to write, and meeting Jose Saramago.
