When Time Divides

In Gunnhild Øyehaug's new novel Presens Maskin we experience a dual universe, two different timelines that are created by a mistake in a Swedish poetry collection in the late 1990s. Using simple, laconic form she presents what is essentially a nightmare scenario - a lost child, a lost life, and characters who do not know what has happened. Gunnhild Øyehaug meets John Freeman for conversation about time, space and what is possible in the novel.
