Ari Behn novel in October

Ari Behn's first novel, Bakgård (Backyard), will be published by Kolon in mid-October this year. Behn, who is married to Princess Martha Louise, made his literary debut in 1999 with a collection of short stories that won critical acclaim.

Recently Ari Behn has been better known for his new life with the royal family, here with his wife, Princess Martha Louise, and their newborn daughter, Maud Angelica.

THEME: The Royals

"This will be exciting. The book is now being printed," said publisher Torleiv Grue at Gyldendal-owned Kolon.

The novel will be the main choice of one of Norway's major book clubs, guaranteeing it a high profile and many readers.

The publishers said the book, which weighs in at 320 pages and will cost about NOK 300, has much of its action set in Las Vegas and Africa.

Behn's first work, "Trist som faen" (Sad as Hell) had a first print run of 1,800 but ended up selling 80,000 copies and bringing the small press success.

Polfoto 10-09-2003 Ari Behn met his readers in Bergen - promoting his new book "back yard" (Bakgard) Over 100 people were gathered in the bookshop at the shoppingcenter Galleriet in Bergen when Ari Behn turned up to read from his coming book "Back yard" yesterday afternoon. The book is to be released in October 2003. Behn describes "Back yard" as a travel novel, where a 20-year-old man travels around the world - on the journey of his life. The main character, Andreas Aakerlied, lives by the slogan: "To travel is to dream with your eyes open".

Ari as an author

Does Ari come from a prominent family? I've read from TRF that he is an author but is he a successful?

I suppose that depends on which criteria you use to define successfulness as an author He manages to get it published anyhow.

A list of Ari's books with a short summary:

Trist som faen, 1999. 15 short stories about young people who're trying to find their place in a complicated world.

Fra hjerte til hjerte, 2003. Märtha Louise and Ari telling the story of their pilgrimage to Trondheim before their wedding.

Bakgård, 2003. A novel about Andreas Aakerlied, 20 year old, going to journey through Sahara to meet his girlfriend in Burkina Faso.

Entusiasme og raseri, 2006. Novel about Kryx, who is meeting Vera Sara, with the same character faults as himself. A novel about success, and disaster - Norway & Las Vegas.

So, is there any specific information about Ari's family?

Probably there is some in Norwegian, but I don't understand.

Fra hjerte til hjerte: book by Ari Behn on the royal wedding

i now found out that ari behn, with the collaboration of martha louise, wrote a book about their wedding called Fra hjerte til hjerte. has anyone read this book? i am curious as to what it says. from my knowledge, there are no other books written by one of the protagonists of a royal wedding, so i am sure it would be an interesting read for some of us. unfortunately the book is only in norwegian, so not that accessible to non-norwegian speakers...

Should translate that book into other languages. I wanted to read. It's not for sale outside of Norway?

And from Martha Louise:

"Dear Ari.
Today we have celebrated you. You would have been 50 years old today. We should have brought muffins on the bed while singing the birthday song in the morning.
Later we would have toasted you, made speeches for you, laughed and danced as we talked about serious things, philosophical things, funny things and everything in between. We can't do that. Nevertheless, we gave you muffins on the grave and sang the birthday song so loudly for you that you must have heard it far past the Pearl Gate. Just wanted to say that we are thinking of you and that you would have been very proud of our children, as you were when you hugged them as only you could. ❤️"
