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 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.
So Much for That Winter by Dorthe Nors
So Much for That Winter (Graywolf, June 2016) is a pair of novellas by acclaimed Danish author Dorthe Nors that playfully chart the aftermath of two very twenty-first-century romances. A cheeky nod to the listicles and bulletins we scroll through on a daily basis, So Much for That Winter explores how we shape and understand experience, and the disconnection and dislocation that define our 21st-century lives.
Copies of So Much for That Winter will be for sale in the Shop at Scandinavia House after June 21, 2016.
