Glad to hear you enjoyed it, David! I almost put the new novel on my Christmas wish list, but it didn't get the greatest reviews, so I think I'll reserve it at the library.
One of the things that makes my Christmas shopping easier is that I buy a lot of copies of the same book and then send it to people around the world, so I get the gift of seeing how they react differently to the same book. I especially like to send Scandinavian books that have been translated. So this year my book gift was "The Employees/Les Employés/De Ansatte" by Olga Ravn. It seems it might be difficult to pick up in North America. But for our UK-members you can buy it here:
It's Danish sci-fi like nothing you have ever read.
The author Olga Ravn has just been inducted into the Danish Academy as its youngest member ever. She should really be able to stir up some shit with its most controversial member who prompted 4 members to resign because they didn't want to be in the same club as her.
