Once, when Madame Nielsen was still Claus Beck Nielsen, this Claus came from the provinces to Copenhagen to meet the truly great people. He wanted to be like them, wanted to fence and dance, sail the seas and climb mountains, wanted to speak many languages ​​and write novels. But he saw that even the big ones were only as small as he was. In this early book (Kiepenheuer & Witsch // German by Hannes Langendörfer), the globally acclaimed Danish author and performance artist Madame Nielsen (Wolfgang Koeppen Prize winner 2024) tells of embarrassing encounters, shattered dreams and the realization that you are yourself takes with you everywhere. A book about the question of when art begins - unmistakably elegant and radically self-revealing.
