When Death Takes Something From You Give It Back: Carl’s Book

At only 25 years old, Naja Marie Aidt’s son dies in an accident in 2015. In »Carl’s Book«, the author recounts the months following the accident. Densely and poetically, she leads the reader to the limits of a language of mourning and enters into a dialogue with poets who have written before her about pain in the face of the finiteness of life. »An extraordinary work of art.« [Kristeligt Dagblad]
