There's a spare yet unfiltered quality to Helle Helle's prose which, when you get the hang of it, is a brilliant reflection of the desultory young narrator. As she navigates Denmark's landscapes, train stations & department stores, a bird call or lost picnic basket make random appearances & are given the same weight as a funeral or break-up. Recommended to fans of Sheila Heti's How Should A Person Be?, Lydia Davis's The End of the Story, Jenny Offill's Dept. of Speculation.
