Why does every Danish book have to be a metaphor for sex?

So here's the premise: Two young boys playing in the forests outside of Copenhagen in occupied WWII Denmark discover a cave underground. Inside the cave is a tunnel that leads them from 1941 to 1988. They crawl out of a hole in the ground near a freeway and immediately have run-ins with with angry farmers, child-hating biker gangs, teen heroin addicts, and rabid dogs, as well as engaging in car theft, police chases, and the massive explosion of a helicopter.

Totally the '80s of your childhood, r

Rifbjergs forsøg på at skrive en ungdomsroman, hvor to drenge på forunderlig vis finder en underjordisk vej mellem 1940 og 1981, er et hæderligt forsøg. Ganske actionprægede sekvenser, som ikke lige er standard-Rifbjerg, vekselvirker med mere traditionelle overvejelser om barndom/ungdom versus det voksne liv. Bogen bærer præg af koldkrigen, som stadig var aktuel i 1981, men bogens temaer kan fortsat finde klangbund i dagens politiske landskab.
