A Line in the World Featured in The New York Times
Dorthe Nors’s essay collection A Line in the World is an editors’ pick in The New York Times Book Review this week. Here is what they have to say about it:
“A chronicle of the author’s travels along the western coast of Denmark, these 14 essays render a personal, poetic meditation on the region’s windswept landscapes and wild waters. An immediacy and an intimacy filter through her spare, brilliant prose.”
Featured is also a review from bestselling author S. Krik Walsh:
“The reader becomes immersed in Nors’s interior weather as well as the harsh external elements of the rugged Jutland Peninsula. At the same time, her essays provoke reflection on one’s own personal geography and how memories map onto specific landscapes.”
A Line in the World was published in the US by Graywolf on November 1st.
