The Literary Review

The American magazine The Literary Review published a glowing review
of the English translation of Birk, made by David Doherty.

‘Part of the brilliance of this novel lies in Robben’s ability to set up this
perfect metaphor for Mikael and his mother. Robben’s novel explores raw
and unsettling psychological territory. It’s a story that – once you’ve read
it – will stick with the reader for a long time.’ Elizabeth Jaeger – The
