Contemporary Danish books to be read and translated

The website texte-tekst.com offers a platform for literary interaction between neighbouring countries Denmark, Germany and France: sample translations and author profiles allow the trade public – and anyone with an interest in literature – a thrilling insight into the contemporary literature of nearby nations. Furthermore the trade public has access to valuable information about sponsorship opportunities in books and translation for Danish literature that is translated into German and French, as well as German and French literature into Danish.

As well as an introduction to recent literary publications in Danish, three Danish authors showcase their novels.
Mette Sø
