About the Author
Josefine Klougart is considered one of the major voices of contemporary Scandinavian literature, hailed as "one of the most important writers, not just of her generation, but of her time."

One of Us is Sleeping was published in its English translation by Open Letter Books in 2016. Her fourth novel, Of Darkness, appeared in 2014 to massive critical acclaim throughout Scandinavia, and will be published in English by Deep Vellum in early 2017.
