Unable to stay on to high school, Tove starts her first job (which lasts only one day) and soon embarks on a varied and chequered career: as au pair, cleaner, stock-room assistant and office worker. But Tove is hungry, for poetry, for love, for real life to begin. As she navigates exploitative bosses, uninspiring boyfriends and a Nazi landlady, she struggles to keep her poetic vocation in sight – until she finally realizes the ‘miracle’ that she has always dreamed of.The second volume in Ditlvesen’s autobiographical trilogy, Youth is a sensitive, often funny and almost painfully truthful portrayal of adolescence.
