he final volume in The Copenhagen Trilogy, the searing
portrait of a woman's journey through love, friendship, ambition and
addiction, from one of Denmark's most celebrated twentieth-century
writers. Tove is only twenty, but she's already famous, a published poet
and wife of a much older literary editor. Her path in life seems set,
yet she has no idea of the struggles ahead - love affairs, wanted and
unwanted pregnancies, artistic failure and destructive addiction.
As the years go by, the central tension of Tove's life comes into painful focus: the terrible lure of dependency, in all its forms, and the possibility of living freely and fearlessly - as an artist on her own terms. The final volume in The Copenhagen Trilogy, and arguably Ditlevsen's masterpiece, Dependency is a dark and blisteringly honest account of addiction, and the way out.
