Not illustrated. 1921 edition. Excerpt: ...think thefe's anything much in being just a God of beasts and mountains. After all, it's us human beings that make Him what He is. So why shouldn't He be with us?" And, having delivered himself of this striking speech, Rolandsen looked extremely pleased with himself. She wondered at him greatly as she walked away. Ho-ho! 'Tw'as not for nothing that the knob of a head he bore on his shoulders had devised a great invention. But now the cognac had come. Rolandsen had carried the keg up from the wharf himself; he went round no back ways with his burden, but carried it openly under his powerful arm in broad daylight--so unafraid was he at heart. And then came a time when Rolandsen found comfort for all distress. And there were nights when he turned out and made himself regent and master of all roads and ways; he cleared them bare, and made them impassable for stranger men from the boats, coming ashore on their lawful errands, in search of petticoats. One Sunday a boat's crew appeared at church, all reasonably drunk. After the service they sauntered up and down the road, instead of going on board; they had a supply of brandy with them, and drank themselves constantly more boisterous, to the annoyance of those passing by. The pastor had come up to reprove them, but without effect; later, the Sheriff himself came up, and he wore a gold-laced cap. Some of them went on board after that, but three of them--Big Ulrik was one--refused to budge. They had come ashore, they said, and were going to let folk know it; as for the girls, they were their girls for now. Ulrik was with them, and Ulrik was a man well known from Lofoten to Finmarken.

Klappentext: The midnight sun illumines more than fishing and fjords in this remote, northern Norwegian village. In fact, half-baked schemes and hilarity abound. Big Ove Rolandsen, telegraph operator, mad scientist, and local Casanova, trades wits, fists, and kisses with a host of quirky neighbors. He serenades the curate's wife and fights a drunken giant, but taking on Trader Mack, the town's fish-glue magnate, is a more difficult matter. Knut Hamsun, author of the acclaimed Hunger and winner of the 1920 Nobel Prize for Literature, renders the dreams and dramas of these townsfolk with a delightfully light touch.
