One of Norway's most celebrated authors and playwrights, Jon Fosse is famed for the minimalist and unsettling quality of his writing. Scenes from a Childhood draws together a number of Fosse's most powerful short pieces, spanning his entire career.

In the title work, we are presented with a loosely autobiographical narrative strand made up of multiple shards of memory covering infancy to awkward adolescence. The collection also contains Fosse's haunting and dream-like novella And Then My Dog Will Come Back for Me, along with his first published story, `Him', written in 1981.

Taken from various sources, this will be the first time that these pieces appear alongside each other in the same collection, offering readers the chance to discover the best of Fosse's inimitable spare and poetic prose.
