TUE —9-27-2016—6-7 PM
Read and discuss Scandinavian literature in translation as part of our Nordic Book Club. Each month we select a novel from some of the best contemporary and classic Nordic literary voices.
Discussions take place the last Tuesday of the month in the Halldór Laxness Library at Scandinavia House. If you’re unable to make it to a meeting or live outside of New York, join in the discussion online in our Goodreads group during the last week of the month.
One of Us is Sleeping
One of Us Is Sleeping is the English-language debut from Josefine Klougart, one of Denmark’s most exciting, celebrated young writers. It is a haunting novel about loss in all its forms. As she returns home to visit her mother who is dying of cancer, the narrator recounts a brief, intense love affair, and the grief and disillusionment that follow its end.
Copies of One of Us Is Sleeping are available for purchase in the Shop at Scandinavia House.
