“The best moments in reading are when you come across something – a thought, a feeling, a way of looking at things – that you’d thought special, particular to you. And here it is, set down by someone else, a person you’ve never met, maybe even someone long dead. And it’s as if a hand has come out, and taken yours.”

- Alan Bennett - The History Boys, 2003.

A dream becomes true

My new book DANSK will be published by Aftryk on March 3, 2022.
The book is an artistic study of the concept of Danish, identity and nationality through fifty paraphrases about the Danish passport from 2016 to today.

More information will follow.

I can't wait to share it with you guys!

A portrait of the survivors of the Holocaust.

Renowned photographer Harry Borden traveled the world in five years photographing survivors of the Holocaust. The people presented vary in age, gender, and nationality, but are all connected by their experience and their survival in one of the darkest moments in human history. Each photo is accompanied by a handwritten note of the person portrayed, which ranges from poems about memories to hopes for the future, creating a strong sense of intimacy between the person being portrayed and the reader. At the end of the book is a section with more information about the person in each portrait, how and what she survived, along with the historical context of the events she has been through. This book, which is thought-provoking and touching, conveys the dignity and humanity of each individual's personality. (Text engl.)

Anna Seghers. "The seventh cross"

Anna Segher's "novel against the dictatorship par excellence" (Marcel Reich-Ranicki):

Seven prisoners have fled the Westhofen concentration camp near Worms, but only one has reached the saving shore. In his flight, Georg Heisler meets men and women who have to choose between selfish renunciation and compassion, denunciation and solidarity. Anna Seghers wrote her famous novel with the sovereignty of a world-class writer and a clear-sightedness that continues to make reading a deeply touching existential experience. "The Seventh Cross" made Anna Seghers famous in one fell swoop and became a worldwide success to this day.

A rediscovered German classic novel from 1942, never before published in the UK, The Seventh Cross is both a gripping escape story and a powerful novel of resistance.

"The Seventh Cross." Anna Seghers, Paperback - Book.

The German cover is more sensitive, and I like it more.
