Present Tense Machine; Gunnhild Oyehaug
- Unit Price
Both Anna and Laura continue to exist, but they are invisible to each other and forgotten in each other's worlds. Both are writers and amateur pianists. They are married; Anna had two more children after Laura disappeared, and Laura is expecting a child of her own. They worry about their families, their jobs, the climate--and whether this reality is all there is.
In the exquisite, wistful, slyly profound Present Tense Machine, Gunnhild Øyehaug--called "one of the most exciting writers working today" by the bestselling author Jenny Offill--delivers another dazzling renovation of what fiction can do: a testament to the fact that language shapes the world.
