Instead, Saeterbakken holds up for our edification a nasty and petulant individual .

Instead, Saeterbakken holds up for our edification a nasty and petulant individual who never was all that much fun in the first place. As it turns out, Kerri Pierce, a recent Rochester transplant and fellow Plübian who has translated five books for Dalkey, including Assisted Living by Nikanor Teratologen, which contains an afterword by Sæterbakken. When I got the news that Stig Sæterbakken had committeed suicide, my first thought was-the world is a less interesting place. Although I never met Stig personally, I worked with him on a number of projects.

Translator Kerri A. 1st ed. by Nikanor Teratologen. Published 2012 by Dalkey Archive Press in Champaign, Illinois, USA. The Marquis de Sade is alive and well and living in Sweden-or perhaps author Nikanor Teratologen is the devil himself, sending the English-speaking world a Scandinavian squib to remind readers that such reassuring figures as vampires and serial killers are no more frightening than pixies or unicorns in light of the depravity contained in one quiet suburb.

January 4, 1966 (age 46). Norway. Sæterbakken was artistic director of The Norwegian Festival of Literature from 2006 until October 2008, when he resigned owing to the controversy which arose when David Irving was invited to the festival in 2009 (see below). Sæterbakken"s books were released and translated in several countries, among them Russia and United States.

The Marquis de Sade is alive and well and living in Sweden--or perhaps author Nikanor Teratologen is the devil himself, sending the English-speaking world a Scandinavian squib to remind readers that such reassuring figures as vampires and serial killers are no more frightening than pixies or unicorns in light of the depravity contained in one quiet suburb. Reading like a deranged hybrid of "Deliverance," "Naked Lunch," and "Tuesdays with Morrie," and rivaling "The 120 Days of Sodom" in its challenge to our assumptions as to what is acceptable (or not) in literature, "Assisted Living" presents us with a series of queasy anecdotes concerning an eleven-year-old boy and his grandfather, a monster for whom murder, violence, incest, drunkenness, and philosophy all pass as equally valid ways to spend one's time. Whether it's a study in excess, a parody of provincial proto-fascism, a clear-eyed look at evil, or simply a prodigious literary dare, "Assisted Living" is unlikely to leave you indifferent.


Pruster
Teratologen strives for the heights of Burroughs and fails, miserably. 'Assisted Living' is annoying, frustrating and meandering to the point of boring.
