Today, I’ve got an excerpt from the award-winning novel The Children by Ida Jessen. Ida Jessen is one of Denmark’s bestselling female authors. Since 1989 she has written ten novels and short stories collections for adults and children. She has also translated novels from Norwegian and English into Danish and won a swathe of awards, including the prestigious Søren Gyldendal Prize and the BG Bangs Literary Prize. For The Children she was nominated for the Prize of the Nordic Council in 2010 and won The Golden Laurels 2009 — a significant prize awarded by Danish booksellers. Pretty impressive stuff!
