The Looking-Glass Sisters

A tragic love story about two sisters who cannot live with or without each other.

Far out on the plains of northern Norway stands a house. It belongs to two middle-aged sisters. They seldom venture out and nobody visits. The older needs nursing and the younger keeps house. Then, one day, a man arrives…

Why Peirene chose to publish this book: ‘This is a tragedy about a woman who yearns for love but ends up in a painfully destructive conflict with her sister. It is also a story about loneliness â€" both geographical and psychological. Facing the prospect of a life without love, we fall back into isolating delusions at exactly the moment when we need to connect.’
Meike Ziervogel
‘It’s a liberating feeling when you get a completely original story in your hands.’
‘Raw and dark and wonderfully different from anything else.’
Dag og Tid
‘Innovative and sensuous.’

    Everything has been written, my story is complete, it disappears. And in a moment I will be gone.

    Here, right at the beginning of memories, I am open to the idea that I, this dusty old thought of living, this primeval wish for a life, have not been conceived and born.

    So now the room is empty and completely clean, and all that’s left is me and the bed. But of course we are also inseparable, forever bound to each other.
