A novel about friendship and love, who you are and who you think you are
Marita has moved to Bergen together with her mother, who asked Marita to call her Kari now, and not mother anymore.
Johannes is the son in a highly educated family, who starts a theatre group at school. He draws words out of his mouth, like baby birds. He says: skinning. Explosion. Marita, look at us. Remember this moment, for good. Be wanton. Like Icarus. Like me, is what he means.
Andreas should have a twin brother, but he hasn’t. A house made of glass; he says when Marita asks about his childhood in the Ibsenstreet.
All three are searching for their future. All three have to find their own way, and the chance to fail is high.
