Steen white bathing hut cover seagull (002)

The White Bathing Hut longlisted to Dublin Literary Award 2023

January 31 2023

“The White Bathing Hut” by Thorvald Steen is on the longlist for the Dublin Literary Award 2023 – congratulations!
This much praised novel is translated into English by James Anderson, published by Seagull Books (India).

Weekendavisen in Denmark said: Thorvald Steen narrates betrayal without condemnation and writes about the shame, individual consequences and ethical choices associated with carrying a serious hereditary illness. Intense and dynamic… The story embodies all notions of a thriller – shady motives, danger, suspense, and a revealing climax -– while the uncannily captivating core is the mother-son relation… The dramatic conversations between mother and son are painstakingly understated, the reader feels the unreleased screams stuck in both their throats. It is a powerful, unsentimental, and loyal portrayal of what shame does to a family as it passes through the generations.
