The Shadow Girls: A Novel by Henning Mankell


Jesper Humlin is a poet of midentitydling acclaim who is saddled by way of hellos underwhelming ebook gross sales, an exasperated female friend, a difficult mother, and a swiftly fading tan. His boy-marvel stockbroker has squandered Humlin’s investments, and hellos editor, who says he will have to write against the law novel to live to tell the tale, starts to pitch and advertise the nonexistent ebook regardless of Humlin’s emphatic refusals. Then, when he travels to Gothenburg to present a reading, he unearths hellomself thrust into a completely different international, the place names shelloft, stories overlap, and hellostories are each deeply secret and in profound want of retelling.

Leyla from Iran, Tanya from Russia, and Tea-Bag, who is from Africa however claims to be from Kurdistan (because Kurds may receive preferential treatment as refugees)—those are the shadow women who change into Humlin’s not likely students in impromptu writing workshops. even though he had imagined their stories as fodder for hellos own ebook, quickly their intertwining lives require hellom to play a much different function.

providing each sudden humor and heartbreaking moments, The Shadow girls is a triumph in order to please longtime fans of Mankell as well as readers new to hellos work.
