YOU KNEW ABOUT A LAND - ABOUT MY FATHER ANDRÉ BJERKE

Vilde Bjerke’s book of memories about her father, the poet and advocate of standard
Norwegian (Riksmaal), has become a warm and intimate portrait. This book is written with
love and sincerity, but still not excluding the less gratifying sides of her father, such as the
alcohol problems or his absence when he was in the middle of a creative process. We get a
close up of André Bjerke in this book, and Vilde Bjerke describes the father-daughter
relationship in an intelligent and sophisticated way. Many situations describe the close
relationship between the two. One recognizes how inspiring and stimulating it must have
been, but also frustrating, to grow up with a famous poet father and an actress mother
(Henny Moan). Vilde Bjerke’s style is straightforward and alive, and the book is also very
much the story about her own thoughts, feelings and experiences. She also gives us an
interesting look into André Bjerke's family background, his childhood and growing up. It s
moving to read about the poet's illness after he suffered a stroke, about his faith in
Christianity and spiritual yearning. The book is illustrated with many interesting photos and
citations signed André Bjerke and Vilde herself.
