Sinners in Summertime by Sigurd Hoel

Book Description

'You are a deceiver and as such belong to the previous generation.' So begins Hoel's Sinners in Summertime, a satirical novel about sex, psychoanalysis, and the arrogance of youth. Originally published in English in 1930, this is the story of a group of graduate students who spend the summer together on the Norwegian coast. Driven by faith in Freud, they are determined to be honest with each other about sex, in order to avoid the self-delusions they feel belong to previous generations. What ensues is a complete undermining of their 'enlightened' values.

Explores Norway's resistance movement during WWII. This novel explores patriotism and treason through the major characters' memories of the Resistance Movement in Nazi-occupied Norway during World War II. At the dark centre of the work are questions of why certain individuals turn against their own country, their own values, and their very selves.
