A Line in the World Praised by Harvard Review
The US edition of Dorthe Nors’s essay collection A Line in the World has received a fantastic review from literary magazine Harvard Review, whose critic is calling it “a powerful, authoritative masterpiece.” Here is an excerpt:
“A Line in the World reads as a cohesive whole and the essays as connected chapters with recurring themes. With the western littoral landscape acting as a unifying element, the essays take the reader on an intellectual, historical, and psychological journey with a rich array of experience and detail. […] In this rather unusual collection, which intertwines subjects as disparate as Viking history, modern surfing, and ancient church frescoes, Nors has written a powerful, authoritative masterpiece. A sometimes stern work, A Line in the World introduces North American readers to a surprising new world and a new way of seeing things.”
A Line in the World was published by Graywolf on November 1st.
