A good novella written in the form of vignettes or messages sent to a lover Although it s supposed to be, in part, a dystopia in which the government moved the terminally illed to a kind of walled in reserve in North Zealand, the dystopian plot is rather flimsy, and I read it mostly as an obvious memoir diary autofiction book, as Maria Gerhardt clearly writes about her own experiences as a cancer patient she eventually died not long after publishing this book 3,5 I wanted to spare you from witnessing any further destruction Of my body, of memories, of the person I used to be The person I will never be again.Transfer Window Tales of the Mistakes of the Healthy is translated by Lindy Falk van Rooyen from Maria Gerhardt s Danish original Transfervindue Fort llinger om de raskes fejl See for an interview with the translator As well as being a writer, Gerhardt was active in the punk and feminist scene in I wanted to spare you from witnessing any further destruction Of my body, of memories, of the person I used to be The person I will never be again.Transfer Window Tales of the Mistakes of the Healthy is translated by Lindy Falk van Rooyen from Maria Gerhardt s Danish original Transfervindue Fort llinger om de raskes fejl See for an interview with the translator As well as being a writer, Gerhardt was active in the punk and feminist scene in Copenhagen, notably as a leading DJ, under the stage name Djuna Barnes She was also a successful footballer in her youth, so the connotation of her choice of title is likely deliberate.But she was diagnosed with breast cancer in her mid 30s and, after an apparent recovery then relapse, died in 2017, aged 39 Transfervindue, her third book, was published just a few days before her death Transfer Window is published by the independent press Nordisk Books The goal of Nordisk Books is to bring a variety of modern and contemporary Nordic literature to an English speaking audience The Scandinavian peninsular not to forget the islands of Iceland, Greenland and the Faroe Islands have had something of a golden era of crime writing in recent years However, there is farto our Northern neighbours literary output than that, to which the works of our immensely talented, select band of authors bear testament.The novel is narrated by Maria who shares many of the author s own biographical details an author and DJ, mother with her female partner of a young son, but suffering with stage 4 cancer But in the fictionalised world of the novel the northern suburbs and coastline of Copenhagen, previously the preserve of the rich, have been appropriated by the authorities and turned into one enormous Hospice, unparalleled anywhere in the world, where cancer patients live out their days, in idealised surroundings but also, occasional visiting days aside, in isolation from the healthy and under a rather institutionalised, albeit benevolent, regime A virtual reality centre enables them to reconstruct fond memories.This is a short but intense novel 84 pages long but each page contains a separate vignette of text, some only a few lines long It opens with the narrator looking over the sea I wait for the sun, smoking cigarettes while I wait, smoking cigarettes, even though it s not allowed When I close my eyes, I m roused by the sounds For a startled moment, I forget that doom isn t bearing down, doom is already here Jeg venter p solen, ryger cigaretter, imens jeg venter, ryger cigaretter, selvom jeg ikke m Hver gang jeg lukker jnene, bliver jeg v kket af lydene Et nerv st jeblik har jeg glemt, at katastrofen ikke er p vej, katastrofen er her allerede. The text is searingly honest and emotional, the narration at different times sentimental, angry, cynical, resigned and scared Maria looks back on her former life, thinks of the early days of her diagnosis, imagines the future she might have had and describes the visceral reality of her condition and treatment The book is addressed to a you , her partner, and their young son We learn Maria left one day suddenly for the hospice and they ve had relatively little contact since I wanted to spare you from witnessing any further destruction Of my body, of memories, of the person I used to be The person I will never be again I didn t want him to come home from school, a football tucked under his arm, only to be greeted by a large party from the palliative team I didn t want you to see my constantly hunched over, lumping, with crutches, with a walker I didn t want you to push me around in the wheelchair I would need one day. And as the novel ends and she enters the transfer window note the use of English in the original I m going to the other side The place that scares you Amid the mild, planetary melodies I m going to soar with eagles I m going to soar with Grandad I m moving on I m meet new friends and there won t be a worry in the world No walls No wake up calls There won t be an ego The only thing I find frustrating about the next dimension is that you are not coming along Jeg skal om p den anden side The place that scares you Til planeternes milde, syngende st j Jeg skal flyve med rne Jeg skal flyve med morfar Jeg skal videre, jeg vil f nye venner, og der vil ikke v re nogen problemer Der vil ikke v re nogen mure Der vil ikke v re nogen ure Der vil ikke v re noget ego Det eneste, der frustrerer mig ved n ste dimension, er, at du ikke skal med. A moving and powerful work its impact out of all proportion to the word count indeed perhapspowerful because of the sparse text This is the latest book from the excellent Asympote Book Club see for a complete list and their take on the book is here stars Min mor har verdens farligste sygdom Hun kan d af det Hun g r rundt hele dagen i underbukser Raw and honest little novella about a relatively young terminal cancer patient living in a luxurious hospice The story is filled with feelings of anger, sadness, pain and unfairness but also with memories of how good life used to be Very impressive Hmmm.M indr mme, at den ikke rigtig greb mig Jeg kom ikke rigtig ind under huden p fort lleren eller de andre personer Teksten stod ligesom i vejen.Det er en vigtig bog med et vigtigt tema skrevet p et s rdeles vigtigt tidspunkt for forfatteren p kanten af d den Derfor er det ikke s fedt at skrive, at den ikke rigtig bet d noget for mig Det er nok det, som v kker flest f lelser i mig v.
