With little time left to recreate everything she's lost, Justine embarks on a series of sexual escapades with a doomed intensity that foreshadows the novel's final, dark twist. A personal meditation on artistic identity, the creative process and the male-dominated art scene, the novel veers between the erotic and the savage, resulting in a spellbinding read from one of Denmark's edgiest feminist writers.
