Jens Bjørneboe's MOMENT OF FREEDOM, translated by Esther Greenleaf Mürer

Jens Bjørneboe: The Trilogy

Jens Bjørneboe's Moment of Freedom (1966), Powderhouse (1969) and The Silence (1974) marked the high point of a controversial literary career. Since the early 1950s this Norwegian iconoclast had been making life difficult for the establishment, attacking its repressive schools, inhumane prisons, corrupt police and power-hungry politicians.
