Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A woman hopelessly in love boards the night train to Nykbing, Denmark, not knowing if the lover she leaves behind will ever be with her again. Then, through attempts to write her distant lover a letter she knows will never be sent, she recounts a long vigil, inspired by love, and her conspiracy with a waiting heart. Night Train to Nykbing is a transformative tale that articulates the dense codes of love and the intensity of a life on the edge of abandonment. But this also is a story of return, finally, to a heart that has wandered through the desert of time.

Synopsis:

A woman hopelessly in love boards the night train to Nykobing, Norway, not knowing if the lover she leaves on the station platform will ever be with her again. "Inside every greeting there is also a farewell", the narrator tells us, and then, through attempts to write her distant lover a letter she knows will never be sent, she recounts a long vigil, inspired by love, and her conspiracy with a waiting heart. 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 this 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.
