Jeg kom til verden på Rigshospitalet i København d. 24.3.1960. Overlægen var i kjole og hvidt - han var blevet afbrudt midt i en gallamiddag - men min søster siger, at det er da ikke noget, hendes fødselslæge var i islandsk nationaldragt. Nogen vil mene at det således allerede fra starten var klart at jeg var et ganske særligt barn. Andre vil sikkert påstå at min mor bare var god til at skabe pludselige gynækologiske kriser.

Jeg blev altså født i København, men det må nok betragtes som en fejl, for min forældre er jyske, min opvækst foregik i Jylland (mestendels i Malling ved Århus), og jeg betragter mig i dag som eksil-jyde på Frederiksberg, på det mine jyske venner omtaler som Djævleøen (Sjælland).

Jeg har skrevet altid, eller i hvert fald

“Because even though you don't want anyone to own you, it doesn't mean that there is nowhere you belong.”
Lene Kaaberbol, The Shamer's War

“She felt as if she was standing at the edge of an abyss, but she was in no way counting on God to rescue her. On the contrary. I don’t believe in any of it. Not anymore.”
Lene Kaaberbøl, The Boy in the Suitcase

“Si quelqu’un a volé, ou porté atteinte à autrui, ou même tué un autre homme, on envoie quérir la Clairvoyante. Car certains font le mal sans en ressentir aucune honte. Et nombre d’entre eux parviennent à cacher leurs scrupules au plus profond de leur conscience en se trouvant de multiples excuses. Ils vont parfois même jusqu’à se convaincre qu’ils étaient dans leur bon droit en commettant leur crime. Mais lorsqu’ils rencontrent la Clairvoyante, ils ne peuvent plus se cacher leurs méfaits ni les dissimuler aux autres. La plupart des hommes connaissent le repentir. Et quand il m’arrive de rencontrer quelqu’un qui n’en éprouve pas ou presque, je fais en sorte qu’il ressente une douleur. Car j’ai appris à utiliser ce don inhabituel qui est aussi le tien.”
Lene Kaaberbøl, The Shamer’s Daughter: Book 1
