Praise for Lars Amund Vaage's poetry —

"Lars Amund Vaage has already established himself as an important prose writer; with his poetry debut, Det andre rommet (The other room) he also shows himself to be an important poet… These are poems that are very accomplished in their form and their melancholy and intelligence take hold of you… There are grand and quiet revelations here." (Aasne Linnest)

"Outside the institution is a rare and sensitive collection of poems that opens rooms which make us wiser, more generous and clear-sighted . . . Poetic and well written… Fascinating reading full of meaning." (Kirsti Mathilde Thorheim)

"Unusually strong about understanding and insanity…"
