This is a beautiful, sad and simple story about a woman around 40 and her younger, dim-witted brother Mattis, for whom she is sole caretaker. For the first 60-70 pages I wondered if I would make it through a book that required me to inhabit the inner workings of a mentally handicapped man – it seeme...
I discovered another great Norwegian novelist. Neat, straight and profound. Vesaas is perfect in putting its pen in the shoes of Mattis, "The Idiot".
