Audun is the only one of his family left with his mother in working-class Oslo. He delivers newspapers when he is not in school and talks for hours about Jack London and Ernest Hemingway with his best friend. But there are some things Audun won''t talk about. Stories about his family, such as the weeks he spent living in a couple of cardboard boxes, and the day of his little brother''s birth, when his drunken father fired three shots into the ceiling. Both tender and brutal, It''s Fine by Me is a brilliant novel from the acclaimed author of Out Stealing Horses.
