Sigrid is a young literature student trying to find her voice as a writer when she falls in love with an older, established author, whose lifestyle soon overwhelms her values and once-clear artistic vision.
Trine has reluctantly become a mother and struggles to create as a performance artist.
The aspiring movie director Linnea scouts locations in Copenhagen for a film she will never make.
As these characters' stories collide and intersect, they find that dealing with the pressures of their lives also means coming to grips with a world both frightening and joyously ridiculous. Wait, Blink combines wild associations, quotations, coincidences, and other peculiar details into a unique brew that is both humorous and profound.
Full of the playfulness that drew acclaim for her story collection Knots, Gunnhild Oyehaug's Wait, Blink - her first novel to be translated into English - is a jolt of desire and fantasy, romance and regret: a fable about what it means to own up to the weirdness inside us all.
