New York Times profile by Wyatt Mason
‟An exquisite and warm novel… Among Norway’s contemporary writers, Ullmann might be the finest sentence by sentence. Here she blasts her story into fragments and puts it back together, piece by piece, with the artistry of someone who has always secretly known the broken things are most beautiful.”
‟[Unquiet] is written and translated with care, insight, a keen sensitivity to the value of every word, and a generous embrace of human strengths and weaknesses. I had the rare experience, as I read it, of at once admiring the way it was written and being engrossed in the story.”
‟A brilliant meditation on time, mortality, and the limits of memory… Ullmann’s prose is elegant […] sharp, and occasionally funny. But the mood of this work as a whole is elegiac. ‘Can I,’ she asks, ‘mourn people who are still alive?’ Gorgeous and heartbreaking.”
