ENDNU EN BOG JEG ALDRIG SKREV – ANOTHER BOOK I DID NOT WRITE
By Ida Jessen
WHY ARE SIGRID Undset, Kathrine Mansfield, Alice Munro, St.St. Blicher, Fjodor Dostojevskij and Kerstin Ekman some of the best authors in the world? Where do they get their ideas from, and how do they shape them so it becomes more human? How can you constantly renew oneself? And the worst of all questions: When are you done as an author and know when to stop?
THE VERY ACKNOWLEDGED Danish author Ida Jessen has since her childhood been an avid reader, and in her striking essay on authors she has close relationships with, adds questions about her own work.
