Is Mother Dead

Holy mother, is this a fantastic read, or what? (It is.) IS MOTHER DEAD traces the obsessive tendencies of Johanna, an internationally successful artist and widowed mother, who has returned to her hometown of Oslo after running away decades before. The book tugs us through the streets of the city and digs deep beneath the detritus of the surrounding woods as Johanna stalks her own mother who long ago disowned her. Psychologically complex and twisting, each page pulls the reader further down a dark spiral into the abyss of doubt, anger, fear, and violence that lurks beneath the surface of an estranged mother-daughter relationship.
