Meet up for a literary meeting between two of Norway's most underrated storytellers when Frank Tønnesen, better known as the artist Tønes, now debuts as author with the book We Can't Take All This Home With Us . He is interviewed by Ragnar Hovland and also offers a mini concert.

Frank Tønnesen, in musical taping better known as Tønes, debuted this fall at the Pelican publishing house with a collective novel from the village district. Here, the curtains are rolled up and gathered for faience, while the social codes that dictate whether you have to invite your neighbor to dinner if he calls just as the sheep's cabbage smell spreads from the kitchen can be irritating and debatable until you turn blue.

No one who has heard of Tønes will dispute that he is one of Norway's greatest storytellers. In book form, this talent blossoms into a bouquet of stories that, together, merge into a collective novel in which Tønnesen's easily recognizable humor fills destinies, characters and social and embarrassed interactions. But parallel to this, Tønnesen prints darker and more existential undertones in stories of loneliness, belonging and exclusion.

Frank Tønnesen manages to tour this material in a light and impactful language and always shows love for these often slightly shady characters who populate his universe, no matter how small problems they stir up, and how wrong their decisions might be. Frank Tønnesens is certainly the author of the small problems, but they can be big enough!
