Join us on Friday March 8, 2024 for a literary encounter with the author of Volume du temps, Solvej Balle, at the Bicolore contemporary art platform on the 2nd floor of the Maison du Danemark on the Champs-Elysées.

Join us for an evening of literary encounters and talks with Solvej Balle, followed by the sale of her books LE VOLUME DU TEMPS Tome 1 and 2 and a book signing. You'll also have the chance to chat with theauthor over a convivial aperitif.

LE VOLUME DU TEM PS 1 & 2 - from Éditions Grasset will hit bookstores on March 6!

Solvej Balle spent twenty years working on the masterpiece of her life, Le volume du temps. This major fantasy literary project quickly became a phenomenon in Denmark, and then the world over. Awarded the Nordic Council Literature Prize 2022, the Nordic countries' top literary prize, and translated into over twenty languages, this extraordinary seven-volume series tells the story of Tara Selter - for whom time stood still on November 18.

  • THE VOLUME OF TIME 1 Translated from the Danish by Terje Sinding

The Volume of Time is an incredible adventure on the frontiers of reason. By challenging time, Solvej Balle prompts readers to reflect on the dangers and beauty of a ritualized life, and on human nature when the only horizon is the monotony of everyday life. A great existential investigation and the first volume of a thrilling saga.

  • THE VOLUME OF TIME 2 Translated from the Danish by Terje Sinding

Solvej Balle continues his exploration of time, focusing on the sensations associated with the calendar. Different lights, different seasons, different moments whose necessity we realize when they disappear. A new aspect of Tara Selter's life, and the continuation of an investigation that goes from surprise to surprise.

Evening organized in partnership with Éditions Grasset.
