You can almost feel the silence, the atmosphere and the sense of place on the shores of the Baltic Sea in this anthology of short stories from the Scandinavian author Lotte Kirkeby.
Each of the 19 short stories tells of a moment where life changes, usually resulting from some form of loss. We follow a child as she goes through her parents' divorce, we travel with a husband going on holiday with his family and a wife that has been cheating on him. We hear from a patient dying of cancer. Each story is very delicate, but at the same time touching and universal to the lives of most of us.
Readers who enjoy authors like Dorthe Nors, Alice Munro or Per Petterson should definitely check out Lotte Kirkeby.
