Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The work of one of Norway's most distinguished 20th-century novelists, Alberta Alone forms the last part of the Alberta trilogy, which traces the emotional development of a lethargic and unhappy girl into a self-sufficient woman. The previous volumes of this trilogy have been widely acclaimed as being among the masterpieces of contemporary literature. In this third part, which stands as a novel on its own, Alberta, now mistress to Sivert, a Norwegian artist, is living in Paris with their small son. While Sivert is involved in a liaison with a Swedish painter, Alberta falls in love with Pierre, a writer who has just returned from the First World War. After a period of conflict Sivert and Alberta return to Norway, and there Alberta's self-realisation becomes complete. With subtlety and insight, Cora Sandel depicts the gradual corrosion of a relationship, against the background of the aftermath of the Great War.
