Dorthe Nors recently received a brilliant review in the Norwegian newspaper Stavanger Aftenblad.

“Each short story is like an iceberg, most of it can be found underneath the surface. […] Dorthe Nors writes tightly and precisely about lonely, melancholic people who are thirsting for love. There’s something quietly beautiful about the way some characters are portrayed, at times characterized by a dark humor. The short stories both make you smile and give you the creeps. In just a few sentences, Nors unveils what is most wounding, and what hurts the most.”

Wild Swims was published in Norway by Gyldendal on September 6th, earlier this year.

NEW BOOK: THE CLUB – A CHRONICLE OF POWER AND ABUSE AT THE HEART OF THE NOBEL SCANDAL

The Club by Matilda Gustavsson digs deep into the machinations that brought down one of the most respected, and secretive, cultural institutions and made the world’s premier literary prize implode before our eyes. Matilda Gustavsson depicts a unique international scandal while presenting an insightful portrayal of the dynamics of power and influence in the world of the arts. This is the riveting story of how power and influence can be wielded in the most elevated rooms of culture – and how art is created and lives are destroyed as a result.

The Club will be released in Sweden on November 22nd by Albert Bonniers Förlag.
