Which author(s) do you not read, and why?
I don't have authors I refuse to read or anything like that. However, I guess I could pick Laurence Sterne. I've tried to read Tristram Shandy twice, and have given up both times. From memory, it's the only book I've ever DFN'd. I simply can't get into it, but I don't know why. Otherwise, I'm always open to try anything.

I was an enigma to my friends. They didn't know which box to put me in.
Last Night in Nuuk
A witty and fearless debut from a stunning new voice, Last Night in Nuuk is a work of daring invention about young life in Greenland. Through monologues, emails, and text exchanges, she brilliantly weaves together the coming of age of five distinct characters: a woman who's "gone off sausage" (men); her brother, in a secret affair with a powerful married man; a lesbian couple confronting an important transition; and the troubled young woman who forces them all to face their fears. With vibrant imagery and daring prose, Korneliussen writes honestly about finding yourself and growing into the person you were meant to be. Praised for creating "its own genre" (Politiken, Denmark), Last Night in Nuuk is a brave entrance onto the literary scene and establishes her as a voice that cannot be ignored.
