Novels are populated by characters, and these characters relate to their own worlds and social situations. When we talk and write about books that, in diverse ways, manage to generate identification and compassion, we often use words like depth. If you read the reviews of the two authors Alice Zeniter and Ida Hegazi Høyer, it is this notion that comes up time and again. Both authors construct literary communions that fascinate and stay with the reader. We are therefore looking forward to hearing the two authors together, with Ellen Sofie Lauritzen, in conversation about literature and relationships.
