Translated from the Norwegian and with an Afterword by Sverre Lyngstad. Cream cloth boards with black lettering to spine. Slight foxing to top-edge of text block and cloth edges. In very good pictorial dust jacket. *** Knut Faldbakken is a Norwegian novelist. Although his books have sold two million copies worldwide he is relatively unknown in the English speaking world. Adam’s Diary (his seventh novel, originally published in 1978 as Adams dagbok) is one of his few books available in English and has long been out of print. It’s an exploration of gender identity: ‘a compelling story of lovers who find themselves the victims of social roles and sexual stereotypes’.
