i just finished reading this book:
it's a danish book, hence the danish title "kunsten at græde i kor", in english "the art of crying" by erling jepsen. i loved it. it is horrible and adorable at the same time. horrible because it is about incest, but adorable because it is written from an 11-year old boy's perspective. he doesn't understand what is wrong with his sister lying on the couch with their father at night, it always makes him feel better afterwards anyway. his father also attends funerals to speak, because his speeches touch people and make them cry and that too makes him happy. so when his father seems down, a death in the small town would be convenient.
the story is set in southern denmark, around the 1960s.
i definitely recommend you reading this. it has also been made into a film, which i think is close to being equally as good.
and i had some film developed, i need to scan them (these are just some of them i was sorting through):
