She has been awarded many prizes, including the Danish Critics' Prize, the Danish Academy's Beatrice Prize, and the P.O. Enquist Award. She was recently given the Lifetime Award of the Danish Arts Council. Her work has been translated into thirteen languages. This is her first novel to be translated into English.
