Nordisco: Things Mom Did With The Help of Whiskey
Date: May 14, 2019
Length: 94 pages
It is the morning after Reidun Saxerud’s birthday, and she has just been unceremoniously dumped by a close friend. Instead of being upset and reeling, she recognizes a pattern in all of her relationships, and, most importantly, the origin of those patterns: her mother.
Unusual, stranger-than-fiction experiences in one’s early years are universal. It is only when we reach adulthood, become one of the many “they”, and discover how small we are in a big world, does it occur to us that some of those events were beyond the pale and affect more than just memory.
Nordisco recounts specific events in Reidun’s life and examines them against the template of modern relationships, and all the things that can go wrong between mother and daughter.

Excerpt: But California is different. It’s dry, relatively, and cooler, in a way. The sun teases me in the morning, blazing the sky in my north-facing window at six each morning. Yet the shadows cast by the mountain peaks lend a crispness to the air that, even after four years, I never quite expect in the middle of summer.
