Linn Strømsborg (born 1986) debuted in 2009 with Roskilde, the story of a group of young people at a music festival, following up with the chap book Øya in the same year. Furuset (Suburbia) came in 2012, then Du dør ikke (You´re not gonna die) in 2016. Aldri, aldri, aldri (Never, ever, ever), published in 2019, confirmed her as one of the most exciting young voices in contemporary Norwegian literature and earned her a nomination for the Norwegian Booksellers’ Prize.
Strømsborg was among the new literary talents chosen to be part of NORLA’s “New Voices” programme when Norway was Guest of Honour at the Frankfurt Book Fair in 2019. She is also marketing coordinator for Norwegian publisher, Flamme forlag.
