SHORTLISTED FOR THE MAN BOOKER INTERNATIONAL PRIZE 2017

'Dorthe Nors is fantastic!' (Junot Díaz)

'Nors' writing is by turns witty, gut wrenching, stark and lyrical' (Los Angeles Times)

Sonja's over forty, and she's trying to move in the right direction. She's learning to drive. She's joined a meditation group. And she's attempting to reconnect with her sister.

But Sonja would rather eat cake than meditate.

Her driving instructor won't let her change gear.

And her sister won't return her calls.

Sonja's mind keeps wandering back to the dramatic landscapes of her childhood - the singing whooper swans, the endless sky, and getting lost barefoot in the rye fields - but how can she return to a place that she no longer recognises? And how can she escape the alienating streets of Copenhagen? Mirror, Shoulder, Signal is a poignant, sharp-witted tale of one woman's journey in search of herself when there's no one to ask for directions.

'Benevolent ingenuity of Nors's writing ... excellent situational tragicomedy ... Nors's reinvention of experimental fiction is marvellous' (The Guardian)
