A hole in the wall is a story is about a man, Hans, who regrets the choices he has made in life. He has grown tired of everyday life. Behind a hole in a toilet cubicle in a public bathroom, he finds something that will make him feel alive again.
Tobias Myrbakk writes stories about what is hidden in the dark. With a mixture of fear and melancholy, most of his stories unfold in the real world with dark flakes of monstrosity sprinkled on top. The characters and events in his stories are symbols of the society we live in today, what we crave and fear.
Tobias has previously issued a collection of short stories ”Mörkerskära”(2009), the poetry collection ”Mental självstympning” (2011) and has appeared in numerous anthologies. ”A hole in the wall” is his first short story translated to english by Andrew Drobny.
