Click here to read the story in its entirety on The New Yorker webpage. Dorthe Nors' "The Freezer Chest," translated from the Danish by Misha Hoekstra, was originally published in the May 25, 2015 issue of The New Yorker.
A couple of years ago a strange, extremely short story showed up in The New Yorker: “The Heron,” by Dorthe Nors (we talked about it here). I was a big fan, and I devoured (but have yet to review — I need to fix that) her subsequent collection Karate Chop.
I’m thrilled to see more of her work showing up in the magazine, and I’ll be joining in the discussion below once I’ve read through it.
