Thure Erik Lund’s Myrbråten stories may be read as grim and funny descriptions of (post)modern Norway – anatomies made by means of highly ideosyncratic style(s). The postmodern condition is ridiculed along with the regressive utopias it engenders. The essay highlights the terms of subject formation in a society where traditional values and social forms have given way to forces of the marked. By way of Deleuze and Guattari’s coupling in L’Anti-Œdipe of schizophrenia, desire and production, it is possible to discern a strategy for emancipation in Myrbråten’s outrages. It amounts to breaking up a deadlocked situation and orienting oneself in the direction of the unknown that the old antagonism may have obscured.
