A diary of Alexanda Carnera

Lysningen is a heartfelt and moving diary: an attempt to regain faith in life through the healing power of scripture. Through thoughts about everyday life in and around Copenhagen, now and then interrupted by smaller trips, with the involvement of both poets and writers, the narrator seeks to arrive at an understanding of what it means to live in this time.
