Foighel, Nina

Written by:  Katja Pedersen

Nina Foighel grew up in Copenhagen and is a qualified psychologist. Her debut work was the short story collection Ting forsvinder og andre historier, 1996, which examines themes such as identity, belonging, and loss, thereby shifting from realist narrative to dreamlike sequences with fragments of memories and a magical symbolism. Her short stories contain a number of references to Jewish culture and religion.
