520    The highly acclaimed debut from an author profiled by the 
       New Yorker as her country's "unlikely literary star," Last
       Night in Nuuk follows the lives of five young Greenlanders
       exploring their identities at the cusp of adulthood. 
       Niviaq Korneliussen is a ground-breaking young writer 
       hailed for creating "[her] own genre" ( Politiken , 
       Denmark) in her witty and fearless debut Last Night in 
       Nuuk . A work of daring invention about young life in 
       Greenland, Korneliussen brilliantly weaves together the 
       coming of age of five young people in the capital city, 
       Nuuk. Fia has recently sworn off sausage (men) only to 
       discover that the woman she wants is unavailable. Arnaq 
       struggles to cope with her past as her hard-partying life 
       spirals out of control and she betrays those she loves 
       most. Inuk, Fia's brother, is forced to escape Greenland 
       after political scandal implicates him, and confronts the 
       true meaning of home. Meanwhile, Ivik and Sara must 
       confront an important transition in their relationship. In
       a collection of blurry nights and bleary mornings after, 
       Korneliussen creates a Greenlandic literature unlike any 
       we have known before--young, urbane, stream-of-
       consciousness, studded with textspeak and delirious with 
       nightlife. With vibrant imagery and daring prose, 
       Korneliussen writes unforgettably about finding yourself 
       and growing into the person you were meant to be. A 
       stunning debut from a brave new voice, Last Night in Nuuk 
       is a dashing entrance onto the literary scene and 
       establishes her as a voice that cannot be ignored.
