But there are stories about his family he would prefer to keep to himself, such as the weeks he spent living in a couple of cardboard boxes, and the day of his little brothers birth, when his drunken father fired three shots into the ceiling. So he refuses to talk and refuses to take off his sunglasses.In his late teens Audun is the only one of his family who remains with his mother in their home in a working-class district of Oslo. He delivers newspapers when he is not in school and talks for hours about Jack London and Ernest Hemingway with his best friend Arvid. But hes not sure that school is the right path for him, feeling that life holds other possibilities.Sometimes tender, sometimes brutal, Its Fine by Me is a brilliant novel from the acclaimed author of Out Stealing Horses.
