The young feminist and very thoughtful writer Olga Ravn has just published her debut collection of poetry called “Jeg æder mig selv som lyng”. In these poems she deals with coming of age, with the body and all it’s demands and the surrounding expectations, with restless love, sex and gender and forbidden acts. She has such a raw and sensitive style of writing and we are taken by her universe of very carefully chosen words, we’re sent back in time, over the top and left stronger and full of questions. And we need some more time to read it all. The motif of the cover is beautiful and clever. It looks like heather, but is actually a scientific model of the inside of a breast filled with wax. Quite a symbol.
By the way, some time ago we had the pleasure of working with Miss Ravn. She did som very nice illustrations for a project. Just to say she has a great talent for drawing as well.
