DOCUMENT INFO
Description: Noren's language burns with heat, anger, humor, sexual energy and existential angst, and his body of work is a powder keg of hidden complexes, unconscious desires, corrosive frustration and painful confrontations. Consciously switching his focus from the troubles of the cultural elite to the plight of Stockholm's underworld, Norn gave powerful voice to the homeless, drug dealers, an alcoholic, a high-school-teacher-turned-schizophrenic, out-of-work artists and executives, as well as a pimp and prostitute. The literary scholar and critic Anders Johansson suggests that "perhaps one could even view it as the cultural equivalent of the murder of Olof Palme," the prime minister whose 1986 assassination (he was fatally wounded by gunshots while walking home from a movie theatre with his wife in Stockholm) sent a shock wave through Sweden.\n So what I could write about was what they told me: their silent voices and footsteps.
