Mirror, Shoulder, Signal is presented as “singularly beautiful novel”, and when it was first published in February 2016, Søren Kassebeer of Berlingske wrote this rave review:
“Mirror, Shoulder, Signal is a brilliant novel about finding your own way in life, even if others would like to steer you. […] Good literature is often about the unremarkable, the ordinary, and Dorthe Nors’s grasp of the story is masterful. […] Mirror, Shoulder, Signal emphasizes the author’s calibre. New readers of Nors can safely begin here. Perhaps they’ll then turn to the rest of her work. They won’t regret it.”
