Furious at mother

Furious dark humour permeates the novel Sommeren mamma hadde grønne øyne (The summer Mummy had green eyes) by Moldovan author Tatiana Țîbuleac (translated by Sindre Andersen). The novel conveys the experiences of people who have travelled from Eastern Europe to Western countries. It is morbid and cynical as well as furiously witty – but also self-deprecating and self-hating of family, up­bringing and eastern European culture. It would be difficult to find a book where hatred of the mother is so fiercely expressed. Țîbuleac talks to Ingunn Lunde, professor of Russian liter­a­ture.
