It’s Electric


It’s hard to read The Sunlit Night without feeling as though you’re enveloped in warmth, swathed by the author’s lyricism and imagery. The sensation is one unique to Dinerstein’s hand—and perfectly matched for the sun-soaked Nordic tale of lives intersecting at the top of the world. 

In a lovely interview with Electric Literature, novelist Rebecca Dinerstein talks about her debut novel, The Sunlit Night; her thoughts on writing; Norway; and the “electric experience of time and space.”
