  • The first English-language anthology set in Copenhagen
  • Introduces some of the finest contemporary Danish writers to an English speaking audience
  • Provides new translations of classic short stories
  • Each story is illustrated with a beautiful photograph of the city

        
Exploring the many moods of the Danish capital.
     
From the narrow twisting streets of the old town centre to the shady docklands, this rich anthology captures the essence of Copenhagen and its many faces. Through seventeen tales by some of the very best of Denmark's writers past and present, we travel the length and breadth of the Danish capital examining famous sights from unique perspectives. A guide book usefully informs a new visitor to Copenhagen but these stories allow the reader to experience the city and its history from the inside.

著者について: 

Edited by Helen Constantine 
Lotte Shankland
    

Helen Constantine taught languages in schools until 2000, when she became a full-time translator. She has published three volumes of translated stories, Paris Tales, French Tales, and Paris Metro Tales and is currently editing a series of 'City Tales' for Oxford University Press. She has translated Mademoiselle de Maupin by Théophile Gautier and Dangerous Liaisons by Choderlos de Laclos for Penguin and The Wild Ass's Skin by Balzac for OUP. She is married to the writer David Constantine. 
   
Lotte Shankland is a Copenhagener by birth who has lived many years in England. She moves easily between both cultures and languages but this is her first book to capitalize on the connection. Trained as an artist, she has taught widely in schools and the community in County Durham, where she has also founded a family firm to preserve the northern tradition of banner painting.
