Night train to NykÝbing: a novel
A woman hopelessly in love boards the night train to Nykobing, Denmark, not knowing if the lover she leaves on the station platform will ever be with her again. Night Train to Nykobing is a transformative tale that articulates the dense codes of love, the passion of waiting, and the terrifying intensity of a life on the edge of abandonment. But it also is a story of return to a country, to a culture, to a language, and finally to a heart that has wandered through the desert of time. As ever, Kristjana Gunnars writes a textured palimpsest of pain and joy, of feeling and knowing entwined with the desperations of everyday life.
