Eksil (2009)
3.9 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: Ejersbo writes a fast paced narrative that brings the world of expat Africa to startling light. His gritty yet relatable diction is impressive in lieu of the female perspective he writes from. I stayed up late to finish this book because there were no natural pauses in the story,...

review 1: Jakob Ejersbo has a writing style which I think is cynic & harsh and his books leaves me with a feeling of gloom. I think his main characters are portrayed very self destructive - something that I do not recognize from my own teen years - but drugs were not a part of my youth eit...

review 1: Read this in English. Usually, writing in translations tends to suffer, as it's hard to translate authorial voice. But here it actually worked well: I loved the spare, present tense writing style. It reminded me a bit of Hilary Mantel or Michael Ondaatje: sharp, quick cuts, short...
Exilio (2012)

review 1: What a devastating book. I finished Exile a few days ago and have been mulling it over, unable to shake the word ‘devastating’. I didn’t enjoy it, and found most of the characters extremely unlikeable and almost un-relatable. But I’m kind of compelled to read the next in the tril...
