Linn Strømsborg: Why children?
 – Norway

Born in 1986, she is one of the most prominent young voices in the Norwegian literary scene. She made her debut with a story about young people at the Roskilde music festival, which were followed by the proses Furuset (2012) and Du dør ikke (You Don't Die, 2016), which share the main character named Eva, and Aldri, aldri, aldri (Never, Never, Never, 2019), a novel about a woman who has chosen not to have children. The last book earned her a nomination for the Norwegian Booksellers Award.
