Two short stories and a novel by the great Norwegian writer captures life in the capital in 1900.

Blackwell North Amer
Sigrid Undset's Kristin Lavransdatter trilogy is an internationally best-selling classic, but her earlier work has long been out of print. In this new collection, readers finally have a window into Undset's views on women's sexuality, the relationship between motherhood and art, and the complex dynamic between women and men. The book includes two short stories, "Simonsen" and "Thjodolf," which capture the lives of people living in Christiana (now Oslo) in 1900; a novel, Jenny, which tells the story of a disenchanted painter; and an assortment of letters written between 1900 and 1922.
