Join us in Libreria on the first Friday of December to celebrate the launch of Norwegian author Kim Hiorthøy’s book; You can’t betray your best friend and learn to sing at the same time. Part Donald Bartleme, part David Shrigley, these darkly comic drawings and stories depict an everyday life where the absurd and the tragic are nestled comfortably together:

“I’m going to go now, she said. Wait! I said, and ran up to get the balloons. Look, I can also do this! I almost sang while I threw them up in the air and caught them again with delicate, swaying movements. That isn’t enough, she said. Yes, yes! It is enough! I shouted back and waved a particularly nice, yellow balloon in front of her face. But she wasn’t interested. Before, when I didn’t have any of this, she said, it was kind of exciting. But now that it takes up so much time, it’s really tiring. She walked to the door and opened it. You just need to get more into it! I shouted, letting a balloon go so that it so that it flew up, making a long farting sound. She shook her head and closed the door behind her. I swiftly grabbed my trumpet and ran to the balcony. It was my last chance”

There will be readings by the author, wine and a chance to get your own signed copy of the book. What better way to kick off the festive season?
