Mirror, Shoulder, Signal, the first first novel from the phenomenal Dorthe Nors, author of Karate Chop and Minna Needs Rehearsal Space has been shortlisted for the 2017 International Man Booker Prize. This incredible book is a poignant, sharp-witted tale of one woman’s journey in search of herself when there’s no one to ask for directions.
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.
Meet Sonja now with this exclusive recording of Dorthe reading the first chapter of Mirror, Shoulder, Signal.
