A Line in the World : A Year on the North Sea Coast
SHORTLISTED FOR THE 2023 WAINWRIGHT PRIZE FOR NATURE WRITING AND THE JAMES TAIT BLACK PRIZE FOR BIOGRAPHY
New in paperback: an exhilarating, moving account of life on the wild Danish coast, from one of Denmark's most acclaimed writers
'A beautiful, melancholy account of finding home on a restless coast' Katherine May, author of Wintering
This is the story of the windswept coastline that stretches from the northernmost tip of Denmark to the Netherlands, a world of shipwrecks and storm surges, of cold-water surfers and resolute sailors' wives. In spellbinding prose, award-winning writer Dorthe Nors invites the reader to travel through the landscape where her family lived for generations and which she now calls home. It is an extraordinarily powerful and beautiful journey through history and memory - the landscape's as well as her own.
