Olav H. Hauge (1908 – 1994) was born in Ulvik, the fjordside village where he spent almost his entire life. While his mother Katrina had deep roots in Ulvik, his father Håkon came from Sogn, several mountain ranges and one fjord farther north.
A strong tale of things dark and dangerous; both disturbing and beautiful Since the day he was born, Jakoba has lived his life as a female. He has grown up with his mother and aunts in a town inhabited solely by women. He now finds himself on the cusp of adulthood and is developing feelings for a girl. Although it’s becoming increasingly difficult to hide his secret, he possesses a talent that may prove his salvation: Nobody sings as beautifully as Jakoba. Meanwhile, deep in the forest, on the far side of the valley, the menacing roar of the male of the species has been heard. Songbird looks at the loneliness that can arise when the safe, secure world you knew and thought would last forever, turns out to be a difficult and dangerous place.
