""Why would I visit museums when I have the whole of history written in my face? Can't you read it?" Suddenly the scars begin to move under my fingers, they become like little snakes and dragons staring at me with small eyes. They twist around Ragnvald's face and round my hands, up my arms. They hiss softly,incitingly, almost melodically. Ragnvald's black eyes hold my gaze, and I sense a burning behind them and in the room around us. I am spellbound."
The White City is a short story from Stavanger, Norway in both past and present. From the 12,400-year-old polar bear from Finnøy to the modern-day oil industry. Not forgetting "the ladies' man" of the Viking Age's, Harald Fairhair, who united Norway. The story is based on Stavanger's history and folklore and is inspired by sagas, folk tales, folk beliefs and museum exhibitions and publications.
Maybe the story also explains the city name, Stavanger, and the white colour of the houses?
"The White City" is the second volume in a planned series of modern folk tales from all the Nordic countries. Volume 1 with the title "The Salmon King" is from Gøtugjógv in the Faroe Islands. The series is published in English and Danish.
The series is colourfully illustrated by Unna Hvid
