A Line in the World Lauded in Dutch Review

Dorthe Nors’ A Line in the World has been lauded in a review from Dutch newspaper Het Parool:

“Nors returns to nature, to the landscape of her childhood, and tells us why it is so important to her. From there, she lets herself be carried away to the coastline. […] Nors follows the coast in her little Toyota, and effortlessly takes you along to all sorts of places. Completely naturally, she mixes her memories (how she was silenced in her hometown after saying something unfortunate about a wolf) with the stories she catches and unleashes along the coastline. […] She talks about water and watersheds, language, history, literature, climate and adaptation. About Amsterdam, oddly enough, but not so oddly because she was writer in residence there for six weeks in 2019 (and working on this book). Nors connects everything to everything, jumping back and forth in place and time. A Line in the World is yet another wonderful collection of stories by Nors.”

A Line in the World was published in the Netherlands May 17th by Podium.
