On April 2, 2019, at 19:00, on the premises of the Norwegian Institute at Athens, Ida Lødemel Tvedt will launch her book, ”Marianegropen”. The book will be presented by the author herself.

From the publishers description of the book:
Drafts from The Mariana Trench is an essay in forty-three acts, about literature and the spirit of the times, about resentment and desire dressed up as ideology, about enthusiasm, rage and love, about cockroaches, milk and makeup, about culturalcritical poses and the role of confession in Public life. The story begins with a choir of Norwegian children longing for transgressive experiences, oceans and whales.
From there we travel through a world that is at times cold and disillusioned, at times mild, kind and jolly. The essay moves between Norway and New York, in the company of contemporary writers like Anne Carson, Maggie Nelson, Claire-Louise Bennett and Lars Amund Vaage, while the oeuvre of Dolly Parton and Louis C.K. is explicated
