Asle is an ageing painter and widower who lives alone on the southwest coast of Norway. In nearby Bjrgvin another Asle, also a painter, is lying in the hospital, consumed by alcoholism. Asle and Asle are doppelgngers two versions of the same person, two versions of the same life, both grappling with existential questions. In this final instalment of Jon Fosses Septology, the major prose work by the Beckett of the twenty-first century (Le Monde), we follow the lives of the two Asles as younger adults in flashbacks: the narrator meets his lifelong love, Ales; joins the Catholic Church; and makes a living by trying to paint away all the pictures stuck in his mind. A New Name: Septology VI-VII is a transcendent exploration of the human condition, and a radically other reading experience incantatory, hypnotic, and utterly unique.

Fosses portrait of memory remarkably refuses. It will not be other than: indelible as paint, trivial as nail clippings, wound like damp string. This book reaches out of its frame like a hand. Jesse Ball, author of Census Jon Fosse is a major European writer. Karl Ove Knausgaard, author of My Struggle Fosse intuitively and with great artistry conveys ... a sense of wonder at the unfathomable miracle of life, even in its bleakest and loneliest moments. In this fine conclusion to Septology, the religious subtexts of the projects companion pieces at last draw into focus. The link between Asles art and his faith finds subtle expression in the parallels between the haunting oil painting of two crossed lines, which the narrator contemplates at the beginning of each section, and the cross made with anointing oil as he is accepted into the Catholic faith.... As the final pages draw to their profound and breath-snatching close, Septology also attains that original ambition: it imbues the very enigma of life, which can seem at times so terrifyingly dark, with a light that is almost beatific. Bryan Karetnyk, Financial Times The entire septet seems to take place in a state of limbo...Though Fosse has largely done away with punctuation altogether, opting instead for sudden line breaks, his dense, sinuous prose is never convoluted, and its effect is mesmerizing. Johanna Elster Hanson, TLS
