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.
