Adelheid Gulbrandsen (42 years) uses her own experiences as inspiration in
this fall's bestselling novel Father's house. The yellow fire stood out as the only brown
the girl in Solør – after her mother had traveled to Blindern to study philosophy and came
back with a big stomach after meeting a newspaper printer from Kenya. Mora was alone and
Life wasn't always easy, but she and her family were resourceful. The grandfather was one
institution as party secretary, the uncle was the unionist Tore Gulbrandsen and
aunt was married to SV's and later Professor Steinar Stjernø. Gulbrandsen even says that
she was "born into politics and in every way spat into social democracy".
She had just moved to Oslo and started her law studies before she was permanently employed in LO.
It was during this period that she seriously recognized the racism in Norwegian society. On the way
home from business trip, she was stopped in customs at Fornebu and harassed because of
skin tone. Gulbrandsen was deeply disappointed when LO did not take the matter further politically. She
continued in the job, but eventually broke up. In this week's edition of HK news
she tells of when she was standing and considered jumping out of the office window on the 9th floor. Then
called Dag Børge Akerø with offers of job in TV2. She did not take the job, but did
together. She had been "seen" again.
