Abstract:

"Johanne, Johanne ... Is an SMS-novel about a young woman's flight from the often mundane reality of everyday existence and her knifeedge attempt at forging an identity for herself in a lifestyle obsessed big city environment, where unlimited options seem available at every turn: freedom, career, excitement, sex, love, security, husband and babies, "whatever". The book follows Johannes's life for nine months via her SMS messages (and only hers) to the somewhat older Jonas, who fulfills her dream of a huge sweeping illicit love affair, but also forces her to make some fateful choices. Much is possible, but how much is wise? A very cleverly constructed, multi-layered story that initially reads as a sexting novel but soon confronts every reader with a range of much deeper questions. A smartphone mirror into the way we live right now, where 50 shades of Grey is shocked to meet Flaubert and Kierkegaard in digital space." --
