FROM THE PUBLISHER - This selection of the best post-war Danish writing ranges from the literary veteran Albert Dam to the most talented young writers. The themes of the stories-with their parallel elements of fantasy and realism-are diverse. Among them are modern fairy tales and those that explore erotic and psychological obsessions and conflicts, providing a broad picture of an interesting and little-known literature, For this volume the editor, Sven Holm, himself a young Danish writer, has chosen twenty-one stories which he thinks will give a representative impression of some of the important trends in Danish literature today.
