Forlagsbeskrivelse af Nothing Like a Dane af Keri Bloomfield

The Danish concept of hygge is a wonderful thing. Even if most fail miserably when they try to pronounce or explain its true essence. Unless you're a Viking of course.  As Keri stood in the departure lounge of Auckland International Airport with her four-month-old baby, searching for her flight on the board, hygge wasn't on her radar. In hindsight she agrees it probably should have been.  But she'd never imagined a chance encounter with a Dane in a crowded bar in her home city of Wellington would lead her here, a mother, about to circle the globe, with no knowledge of when she'd return home.  Eighteen thousand kilometres away a new life awaited her in Denmark. A country where babies sleep outside, the word for bread is seemingly impossible to pronounce and a country in which immigration challenges abound.  A witty observer of cultural nuances, Keri reveals the day-to-day realities of a New Zealander living her best life in Denmark. From integration interrogations to rye bread misdemeanors, Nothing Like a Dane provides a humorous and heartfelt insight into creating a new life in a faraway land.  And what did she learn? That it's not all hygge and pastries. Even in Denmark.

    Marianne Merrild

    Sjov og indsigtsfuld bog om det at lande i Danmark og et multi-kulturelt forhold. Der er opture og nedture og her beskrevet så man griner med på alt det besynderlige Keri undres over som vi andre tager for givet. Et godt indblik ind i hvordan der er at arbejde på at blive integreret i et nyt samfund. Sætter tanker igang som dansker om hvordan vi kan hjælpe de nyankomne ved at forklare lidt mere af hvad der foregår.

    Madeleine Lempereur

    As a new-ish "love immigrant" to Denmark, I adored this book - finding myself consistently nodding and giggling along the way. Keri's writing made my own undulating trajectory of adjusting to life in a new land feel validated and, frankly, normal. A must-read for any newcomer to Denmark. This book will make you feel right at home on the sofa with your new friend, Keri. It might also make you crave a pastry...
