Marianne Marthinsen

Significant Man Syndrome

Tonje is brilliantly intelligent. Raised by an inattentive single mother, she is only seen and recognized outside the four walls of her home.

When she starts university, she is seen – in more ways than one – by a married professor, which leads to both an academic and a sexual affair. But when that relationship breaks down, she is caught, or lets herself be caught, by another man: successful lawyer and recently divorced father, Jørgen. Suddenly, Tonje finds herself in a world inhabited by highly educated, perfect family members. She should feel happy, but something is gnawing away beneath the surface.

Significant Man Syndrome is a novel about social disobedience and strong unrest.
