by Jens Christian Grondahl

A powerful exploration of two lives thrown together, literally by an accident. Both are suffering the after-effects of love and trying to escape in their own way. The dual narrative adds to the feeling of two people being drawn together.


To start with she had been an interesting interruption in his orderly life. When she had gone he discovered he had grown accustomed to her being there. Something was lacking without her, although her bed was quickly filled by another patient. He had not felt this with any other patient, and it disturbed him a little, although not until now .... That was the boring thing about that Monday. Everything was normal again after an interruption that had been so long that he had forgotten the everyday routine that had been broken.
