Dorthe Nors and Helena Kelly


“There are so many women who are not married, and don’t have children, out there; there are so many of us but it’s still a bit provocative to write about.” In this interview for BBC News, Dorthe Nors talks about Jane Austen, writing about women, and her novel Mirror, Shoulder, Signal (Graywolf Press, 2018), with Helena Kelly, author of the biography Jane Austen, the Secret Radical (Knopf, 2017).

“It's a fun process—I really enjoy it, because it’s nerdy but it’s also very creative.” In this interview, Dorthe Nors talks to Ali Millar about the experience of working in collaboration with translators for her short story collection, Karate Chop, translated from the Danish by Martin Aitken, and her novella Minna Needs Rehearsal Space, translated from the Danish by Misha Hoekstra, which were released together in an edition by Pushkin Press in 2015.
