9780099587477: This Should Be Written in the Present Tense

A beautifully intimate novel from award-winning Danish novelist, Helle Helle

This should be written in the present tense. But it isn’t.

Dorte should be at uni in Copenhagen. But she’s not.

She should probably put some curtains up in her new place.

And maybe stop sleeping with her neighbour’s boyfriend.

Perhaps things don’t always work out the way they should.

Review:

"Helle Helle’s simple, to-the-point prose cuts to the quick…it’s refreshing to find such an intimate book that leaves something for the reader to writer in their own mind… This Should be Written in the Present Tense is a contemporary classic in the making" (Emma Nicklin Stylist)

"A book with all the bigness hidden away" (John Self Guardian)

" Compelling " ( Emerald Street)

"There is so much in this book, so much hinted at and alluded to. So much going on off-screen. [...] One of the literary finds of the year" ( Bookmunch)

" A beautiful evocation of the reckless naïveté of the early years of adulthood. [Helle Helle's] pared back style gives the novel a haunting quality, exquisitely reflecting the detachment and doubts of the protagonist's life. […] This is a highly recommended introduction to the work of a talented new name on the European literary scene" ( Book Trust)
