- "In her old house by the fjord. Signe lies on a bench and sees a vision of herself as she was more than twenty years earlier: standing by the window waiting for her husband Asle on that late November day when he took his rowboat out onto the water and never returned. Her memories widen out to include their whole life together and beyond: stretching back over five generations of love and tragedy to Asle's great-great-grandmother Aliss and her own struggles with implacable nature. In Jon Fosse's vivid. hallucinatory prose, all these moments in time inhabit the same space, and the ghosts of the past collide with the living. Aliss at the Fire is a haunting exploration of love, ranking among the greatest meditations on family, devotion, and loss."--BOOK JACKET.
