Interview with Paul Waaktaar-Savoy

The real Paul Waaktaar-Savoy enjoyed the read of this "funny and charming" book just as much and showed his solidarity with Hobo saying "I am like that" when it comes to be obsessed about somoene.

Where does passion end and obsession start?

This is the main question of "The Scoundrel Days of Hobo Highbrow", novel by Norwegian author Pål H.Christiansen. The book tells the story of desperate writer Hobo Highbrow who loses his job, almost loses his girlfriend but most definitely loses grip on reality. The only fix point in his life is the music of the band a-ha and particularly his admiration for Paul Waaktaar-Savoy.

People from 20 countries have bought their copy ever since the book has been published in October 2008. It is actually the second translation of the Norwegian original "Drømmer om storhet" that got much attention when released in 2002. A German version entitled "Die Ordnung der Worte" had been published in 2007, receiving rave reviews just like the original.

Foreign publishers interested in publishing another translation are welcome.
