places one is dealing with a positively euphoriant portrayal, and thatís
quite a statement to make about a new Danish novel. So allow me to
immediately take off my hat for Prerequisites For Life Ö It is magical
and refined Ö The high point in this regard is a feverish trip through a
Moroccan medina Ö This is the novelís tour de force and is accomplished
in thoroughly exciting fashion Ö So, if you have some spare time, youíre
not only in fine - but also wise - company with Laila Ingrid Rasmussen."
"Prerequisites For Life is a book about the ordinary, the
inconspicuous and conventional. Still it is an unusual novel. An
unusually delightful and insightful novel."
