Jenny Hval

“Hval’s words shock precisely because they’re not referring to sex or desire but instead address vulnerability and nurturing.” — Guardian

Norwegian musician and writer Jenny Hval has honed an intellectual and uncompromising view of politics and sexuality in her prose as well as in records that include Blood Bitch; Apocalypse, Girl; and Innocence Is Kinky. Paradise Rot is the first of her books to appear in English.
