the easiness and the loneliness (Kobo eBook)
Nordenhof’s poems are very steeped in body issues—both child abuse and her background as a prostitute—which are of great interest to today’s readers.
A literal best-seller when it was released in Denmark, this collection has already been excerpted in a number of journals, and more pieces will be appearing in the near future.
This is the final book in Open Letter’s “Danish Women Writers Series,” which is a great resource for readers interested in finding works by women in translation. (Or booksellers who would like to create a display.)
