Part of a long series of novels about the author's alter ego, Espen Arnakke, a sailor from Jante, Denmark, begun in 1931 and continuing to 1938. He explores his irrational act of murdering a friend who seduced his girlfriend. This part is set in the small narrow-minded Danish village he calls 'Yoknapatawpha' where Espen explores his childhood to find out who he is.

Ignore the single star troll review, this book is an amazing critique of Denmark.

Someone who wrote the intro is either pulling our leg, or is the butt of a joke. 'Yoknapatawpha" is the fictional (US) county created in William Faulkner's "Flags of Dust". Yes, we do read the stuff.
