Agnes Ravatn Book and Novel

Agnes Ravatn - Author


Agnes Ravatn (b. 1983) is an author and columnist. She made her literary debut with the novel Week 53 (Veke 53) in 2007. Since then she has written three critically acclaimed and award-winning essay collections: Standing still (Stillstand), 2011, Popular reading (Folkelesnad), 2011, and Operation self-discipline (Operasjon sjoldisiplin), 2014. In these works Ravatn shows her unique, witty voice and sharp eye for human fallibility. Her second novel, The Bird Tribunal (Fugletribuanlet), 2013, is a strange and captivating story about shame, guilt and atonement. Ravatn received The cultural radio P2's listener's prize for this novel, a popular and important prize in Norway, in addition to The Youth's Critic's Prize. The Bird Tribunal was also made into a successful play, which premiered in Oslo in 2015.
