Jo Nesbø

I read this as a young student, and I thought you had to be me or one of my friends to appreciate the raw humor and sweet sadness. So I was surprised when my father picked up my book when I was home for summer holiday, and I saw him sitting in his reading chair, laughing out loud. It’s a bit like your parents copying your playlist and actually digging it; you're not sure whether you should feel invaded or proud.

This one just floored me. So vivid, so alive. So blunt. I thought I had a raw deal as a kid and then I read this and realized it could have been a lot worse.
