Buy my book!

3rd November 2012, 18:00

I have a book out about Denmark. It’s called How to be Danish.

If you like The Killing, Borgen or The Bridge, then you might like this too! Using these shows as a starting point, the book aims to provide a wider context to the bits of Denmark that over the past few years have intrigued some of us in Britain – an accessible panorama of Danish life, written from an English perspective. You can order it here. It’s out now, and it’s the perfect Christmas present for all Scandi fans – or indeed anyone interested in a different way of doing things. The New York Times said it was “fascinating“. It was a travel book of the month at The Sunday Times, who called it “eloquent and inquiring”. The lovely books blog BookBag judged it ”so interesting that you’re likely to want to run through it in one go.”

… but I’ll get around to it eventually. In the meantime, check out my more recent work on my Guardian landing page. My Twitter’s here, my Facebook page is there, and my bio’s right… here.

I’m quite excited by this new Cambridge fashion blog: Scene in Cambridge.

It’s like The Sartorialist, but for East Anglian undergraduates. Genius.
