Jan Grevstad's second collection of nine short stories has, above all, the ambition to amuse its reader. Amid a dash of satire, his stories reflect British type of humour at its best. Mostly stories of fiction, they have strong roots in real life with compassion for the human condition and human fate. The "Edelweiss Saga" is based on an old tale and has an ecological touch, while "The New Shooting Range" is a fantasy developed from a real experience of cultural clashes in the Alps. "Don't Queue" is based on the true story of a Royal Norwegian visit to Geneva, and "A Peasant in Paris" is entirely autobiographical.
