Ariel Levy is a successful journalist in The New Yorker, where she often writes about women who break with the traditional expectations in how you express and live gender and sexuality. She has a nice little house and is married to the woman in her life. When she, at 37, also becomes pregnant, her life is perfect. Or not.

The Rules Do Not Apply (translated into Norwegian by Rune R. Moen) is Levy’s memoir, in which the pivot point is those few weeks when the foundation of her life crumbles and she is brought down by the very biological rules she thought herself above. At the house of Literature she met Morgenbladet’s Bernhard Ellefsen for a conversation about biology and lived life. The event took place April 11, 2018.

The Sellout is about an America so steeped in its racist history that race becomes unavoidable. But nobody wants to talk about it, and there is no end of human oblivion, foolishness and evil. The Guardian has dubbed Beatty the funniest writer in America. However, the novel is also characterized by an immensely precise language and deadly seriousness. At the House of Literature, Beatty met writer, poet and editor Dan Andersen for a conversation.
The event took place April 18, 2018, and opened with a video introduction from comedian Thomas Seltzer, one of Beatty’s greatest Norwegian fans.
