A smart, witty novel of driving lessons and vertigo, short-listed for the Man Booker International Prize Sonja is ready to get on with her life. She's over forty now, and the Swedish crime novels she translates are losing their fascination. She sees a masseuse, tries to reconnect with her sister, and is finally learning to drive. But under the overbearing gaze of her driving instructor, Sonja is unable to shift gears for herself. And her vertigo, which she has always carefully hidden, has begun to manifest at the worst possible moments. Sonja hoped her move to Copenhagen years ago would have left rural Jutland in the rearview mirror. Yet she keeps remembering the dramatic landscapes of her childhood--the endless sky, the whooper swans, the rye fields--and longs to go back. But how can she return to a place that she no longer recognizes? And how can she escape the alienating streets of Copenhagen? InMirror, Shoulder, Signal, Dorthe Nors brings her distinctive blend of style, humor, and insight to a poignant journey of one woman in search of herself when there's no one to ask for directions.… (més)

Hay que estar muy, muy atento para descubrir lo que fluye por sus páginas. ( )

110/2020. The story is about a middle-aged woman without a future, because she doesn't want any of the futures that society has directed her towards, mostly presented as mother or corpse, and who is therefore obsessed with the past. But the past isn't a place so she can only go back there inside her own head, except her own memories aren't enough for her and the people from her past don't want to share the insides of their heads with her. At the end of the book she embraces a future in a place and social role, as a rural spinster, that society has told her are both undesirable.

The style of writing is descriptive. It presents and dissects without interpreting. The author explicitly separates this work from crime novels in which people are dismembered and then interpreted as clues, from the work of psychologists in which people's minds are broken down and interpreted, from the work of therapists (or shamans) in which people's emotions (or spirits) are anatomised and interpreted. The descriptive imagery is creative enough that it occasionally momentarily veers into bizarre or surreal disconnection. A typical pop-literary Man Booker International shortlist novel. ( )

Un libro sulla solitudine di una ultraquarantenne in città, dove si è trasferita 20 anni prima, piena di sogni, speranze e progetti, pronta a cogliere tutte le opportunità della vita. Ma il bilancio è deludente: Sonia è una traduttrice, quindi lavora da sola, con ritmi e orari che le lasciano spazi sempre più vuoti in una vita sempre più vuota. Passati gli anni degli eccessi giovanili, quando l'esistenza di ognuno si stabilizza all'interno della propria bolla, lei si accorge di non avere costruito nulla e di provare sempre più nostalgia della vita dei campi e del paesello d'origine, dove comunque a suo tempo era considerata strana, per il suo non uniformarsi ai modelli di vita proposti.
Che dire, un libro che non mi ha fatto per nulla bene!

Dorte Nors skriver blændende om en sympatisk kvinde, der har det svært i livet med alle sine mange tanker og usikkerheder. Hun prøver at gøre det, hun bliver lært at gøre - spejl, skulder, blink - og alligevel sidder hun fast. Dejlig tekst at læse, så bogen blev hurtigt slugt, men selve historien og hovedpersonens udvikling interessede mig ikke det store. Ikke forfatterens fejl, bare et spørgsmål om smag. ( )

rambling with flashes of brilliance. full of deadpan humour and assurance of its own intelligence and unique perspective. not a model for plot but one of characterisation and point of view. ( )
