About the Author

Stine Pilgaard is a graduate of the Danish Writers' Academy and the University of Copenhagen. Her first novel, Min mor siger ("My Mother Says"), was a critical and commercial success, earning a nomination for the prestigious Danish Broadcasting Corporation Literature Prize and securing its author the Bodil and Jørgen Munch-Christensen Award for a debut author. In 2016, Pilgaard received the Danish Libraries' Writers Award and was nominated for the Danish Readers' Book Award for Lejlighedssange ("Songs for Special Occasions"). The Land of Short Sentences was an instant bestseller in Denmark, where it was released to critical acclaim.
