Description

Revolution is a collection of eleven short stories that act as a vital bridge between the novels Exile and Liberty. But it is also so much more than that. Ejersbo had a remarkable and unaffected talent for getting inside the heads of his characters: Moses, a worker in a Tanzanite mine who lives in hope of striking it rich; Sofie, a Greenlander who joins a French conman on his trip around the world; Rachel, who tries to make a life for herself in a city where everyone sees her as a whore in waiting. You feel that Ejerbso could have written from the heart of every person living in Tanzania; and that you could go on reading them forever.

About Author

Jakob Ejersbo made his literary breakthough with Nordkraft, a searingly realistic novel that changed the face of Danish literature. From 1974-7 and 1983-4 he lived in Moshi in Tanzania. He died in 2008 and did not live to see the publication of The Africa Trilogy. Mette Petersen's previous translations include My friend Jesus Christ by Lars Husum and Exile, the first of Ejersbo's trilogy.
