You're welcome, Sunita. I look forward to reading your reactions. It's a very good, albeit somewhat confusing, novel. I wonder if part of the confusion flows from my Anglophone ears—hard of hearing anyway—failing to adjust to the Greenlandic proper names.

Anna Reminds you of both Milkman and Normal People? I'm sold.

Anna, I think that Nuuk is inventive and revelatory, but it feels darker to me than Normal People and even Milkman.

Anna It's interesting that you thought that Milkman was darker than Normal People, I felt the opposite. But dark doesn't scare me as long as there is a point to the darkness.

And back at ya, Anna: to me, the physical threat and the politics of Milkman made it a darker read. I'm looking forward to your thoughts on Nuuk. Incidentally, the US and the UK titles for differ.

Anna I'm looking forward to reading it, Dan! And thank you for pointing out the disparity in titles.

Meike I'm so excited that this is getting more and more attention, Dan - Korneliussen really deserves it!!
