‘SEE YOU TOMORROW is an exceptional novel, as incredible as it is realistic, written with an explosive force and a pulsating passion. A majestic page turner!’  KARL OVE KNAUSGÅRD

Winner English PEN Promotes Award

A stunning, category-defying novel from one of the most charismatic, mesmerising authors you will ever meet. SEE YOU TOMORROW is a haunting neo-noir drama from the underbelly of the richest city in the world. Its pace will leave you breathless.

‘SEE YOU TOMORROW is an intense, riotous, funny, sexy and thrilling book, full of grit and truth. There is not a single boring sentence. This is a full voltage blast of a novel and Tore Renberg is a great writer.’ MATT HAIG

Pål has a shameful secret that has dragged him into huge debt, much bigger than he can ever hope to repay on his modest civil servant salary. He desperately doesn’t want anybody to find out – especially not his teenage daughters or his ex-wife. It is time to get creative.

Sixteen-year-old Sandra also has a secret. She is in love with the impossibly charming delinquent Daniel William, a love so strong and pure that nothing can come in its way. Not her concerned parents, not Jesus, and certainly not some other girl.

Cecilie carries the biggest secret of them all, a baby growing inside her. She can only hope that her boyfriend Rudi is the child’s father. But although she loves him intensely, she feels trapped in their small-time criminal existence, and dreams of an escape from it all.

Over three fateful September days, these lives cross in a whirlwind of brutality, laughter, tragedy and love that will change them forever. Tore Renberg has written a fast-paced, moving and darkly funny page-turner about people who are trying to fill the holes in their lives. Combining Nordic social realism and Western popular culture, horror and hope, heavy-metal music and literary marvels, SEE YOU TOMORROW is a startlingly original, eerie and hilarious novel about friendship, crime, loneliness and tragic death – that will stay with you long after the last page is devoured.

The Art of Repair

It all started with a pair of socks… White, woollen – my favourite pair. The heels had become thin and threadbare; then a small hole appeared on one of the toes. Too precious to throw away, I decided to mend them. I chose a ball of yarn from my mother’s wool collection and she found me her old darning mushroom, which had once belonged to my granny, and explained the basics. I remember the feeling of it: threading the needle with a strand of contrasting grey wool, while pulling the heel over the domed wooden mushroom; weaving my needle in and out of the surviving strands; making little bridges back and forth like a lawn mower; slowly closing the hole. The process was instinctive. I can still recall the feeling of pride and achievement when I had finally finished. Sure my darn looked a little rustic, but I had given my socks
a new lease of life, a second chance.
