Reviews

... A work of a strikingly modern sensibility. A stream-of-consciousness story of five queer protagonists confronting their identities in twenty-first-century Greenlandic culture. - NEW YORKERCrimson transports us to a cold homeland where the blood runs hot. - GUARDIANIt has caused a stir . . . a candid commentary on the countries social issues. - BBCKorneliussen writes crushingly honest about sex, sexual assaults and social problems, but more than anything the novel is about being true to oneself. - Trelleborgs Allehanda (Swedish newspaper)This is unfiltered sexual realism... Niviaq Korneliussen's novel debut about existential pain and release, breaks and reconciliations, shows us how there are many possible roads to liberation, and it deserves to been known far and wide. - Politiken (Danish Newspaper)With just 171 pages it is a rather short novel, but what it lacks in volume it makes up for in raw masses of content and mediation. This is a wonderful mix of banging punchlines and poetry - it is well written and vibrant. - litteratursiden.dk (Danish website)Crimson is a novel about finding out who you really are, inside this demanding and lusting shell we call the body. - Morgenbladet (Norwegian newspaper)A wonderful novel debut about love and about standing out in Greenland. The book is both formalistically and linguistically exciting - and there are many moving scenes, among which a birth is very beautifully described. - Kristianstadsbladet (Swedish newspaper)
