The Norwegian Non-Fiction Canon

The preface I wrote specially for  my own Norwegian translation of Simone de Beauvoir: The Making of an Intellectual Woman (Simone de Beauvoir: en intellektuell kvinne blir til) made it on to the list of the 45 best non-fiction texts in Norway, selected by the national organization for teachers of Norwegian (LNU). The jury’s list was published in March 2009. See the list in Sakprosakanon for skolen.
