Kristian Klausen

Diaries 1996-2018

The narrator in this novel is a librarian who has kept a diary for 22 years. He is also a writer of obscure novellas, but not a particularly successful one. One day he decides to fine-tune the most poetic parts of his diaries and make them into a small work of prose. But his editor wants something else: why not publish all of his diaries, unedited and uncensored? The narrator's ex-partners, ex-girlfriends, colleagues, friends, relatives and neighbours are all exposed in the worst possible light in the diaries. But the editor is persistent: literary quality no longer plays a part, all that matters is the ability to make waves in the media.
