This is the first translation of Suzanne Brøgger's work to be published in English since "Deliver Us From Love" (1976). The book contains her autobiographical meditation, "A Fighting Pig's Too Tough to Eat", and a selection of essays from the past 20 years, showing her development from social rebel to iconoclast and visionary. Born in 1944, Suzanne Brøgger has always been unconventional in her lifestyle and in her writing, in a way that has often prompted comparison with her fellow countrywoman Karen Blixen. She writes stories, poems, plays and essays, and many of her writings transgress genre boundaries. Her pronouncements and her activities have excited much controversy in Denmark, and her books have been translated into 13 languages. Beginning as a polemicist, she has matured into a philosophical writer for whom the writing process is a continuous meditation on life, death and eros.
