Author(s)/Editor(s): Tine Høeg, translated from the Danish by Misha Hoekstra
Publisher: Lolli Editions
Dimensions: 121 x 179 mm
On her first day of work as a teacher, a young woman meets a married man on the train. They begin an affair, a ride which proves as jolting as her transition into the new job and the authority that comes along with it.
New Passengers is as audacious as it is enthralling, as wry as it is moving. Eliciting the speed of an express train and the immediacy of a text message, every line shimmers with quick-witted insight as Høeg casts a critical eye on the social mores that shape our lives. Winner of the Bogforum’s Debutantpris, the prize awarded each year for Denmark’s best fiction debut, the novel was adapted for the stage at the Royal Danish Theatre.
