The Trouble with Happiness: And Other Stories by Tove Ditlevsen

Tove Ditlevsen has repeatedly demonstrated a mastery of simplistic, nostalgic, and ominously eerie prose that radiates throughout her works; similar to Shirley Jackson’s The Haunting of Hill House, the chilling nature of Ditlevsen’s storytelling radiates beyond the page and into the hearts of her readers. Her uncanny talent for vivid imagery and conveying working class experience has kept her spirit alive since the original publication of these works in the 1960s. Now more than ever can we find solace in stories the way she once did.  —Caroline
