Camilla’s Long Nights

Mona Høvring

Nominated for the Nordic Council Literature Prize 2015

Camilla’s Long Nights is a concise and unique novel about existential terms; concerning adolescence, desire and sleeplessness. The novel consists of short, intense stories, based on Camilla Collett’s memoirs Through the Long Nights (1862). Mona Høvring writes with great insight and affection.

The renderings and portraits in Camilla’s Long Nights lend a modern introduction to an author and  a body of work which still, two hundred years after Camilla Collett’s birth, continues to haunt and inspire us.
