short stories and poems by Pivinnguaq Mørch


the book

The writing tradition in Greenland has not existed for more than a couple of hundred years, but in those years there has developed a style that is called ‘traditional’. But now something is up with the literary community in Greenland.

Pivinnguaq Mørch’s book that translated is called The White Running Shoes, is one of the recent books that experiment with the way of writing here in Greeland. Pivinnguaq builds a bridge between the old and the new both in his style, the lay-out of the book, and in the existentialistic poems and short stories of the book.
