About the Author
Nominated for the Nordic Council Prize, the Danish author Harald Voetmann (b. 1978) has written novels, short stories, poetry, and a monograph on the Roman poet Sulpicia. He also translates classical Latin literature, notably Petronius and Juvenal. Sublunar is the second in his series of three historical novels about mankind's will to conquer nature. New Directions published the first novel, Awake, about Pliny the Elder, in 2021; the final instalment, following eleventh-century German mystic Othlo of St. Emmeram, will publish in 2024.
Johanne Sorgenfri Ottosen is a Danish translator born in 1986. She currently lives in Copenhagen where she also works as an illustrator and literary editor.
Reviews
Original, piercing, and richly exhilarating. Voetmann's text is a sharp reminder of how powerfully and succinctly well-chosen words can create a world, render experiences, and express thoughts--in short, transport us, to places and in ways we could not have imagined.--Claire Messud "Harper's"
Reading Voetmann's books makes me feel so alive. His voice is like no other, his hold on his material masterful.--Olga Ravn
Arresting and memorable.-- "Kirkus Reviews"
Voetmann's saturnine imagery touches both ends of the optic nerve, intermingling what is seen with what is known... Marvelous.--Trevor Quirk "The Baffler"
