    • 2011, "Innsirkling, Volum 3" by Carl Frode Tiller, H. Aschehoug & Co. →ISBN [1]
      Det er ledig på benken under syrinen, så eg går bort dit og sett meg, eg lukkar auga og drar pusten inn gjennom nasen, kjenner den søte lukta av nyklipt gras, og sitt slik ei lita stund, og så opnar eg auga og legg avisa opp på låra, opnar henne.
      It's relaxing on the bench under the lilac, so I go off there and settle myself, close my eyes and draw breath in through my nose, recognising the sweet smell of newly mown grass, and sit like that a little while, then open my eyes, place the newspaper on my lap and open it.
