The Summer of Ellen

Author(s): Agnete Friis; Sinead Quirke Kongerskov (Translator)

Fiction and NZ Fiction

Jacob, a middle-aged architect living in Copenhagen, is in the alcohol-soaked throes of a bitter divorce when he receives an unexpected call from his great-uncle Anton. In his nineties and still living with his brother on their rural Jutland farm-a place Jacob hasn't visited since the summer of 1978-Anton remains haunted by a single question- What happened to Ellen?

To find out, Jacob must return to the farm and confront what took place that summer-one defined by his teenage obsession with Ellen, a beautiful young hippie from the local commune, and the unsolved disappearance of a local girl. In revisiting old friends and rivals, Jacob discovers the tragedies that have haunted him for over forty years were not what they seemed.
