Michael Kjærgaard

We have asked our teachers to recommend a place, a Danish artist or Danish literature. This is what Michael recommends.

Who is your favourite Danish writer?
”Reading books can inspire you to do many things. When I read the Danish author Tom Kristensen’s book ‘Hærværk’ about a Danish journalist and his growing taste for whisky, it made me start slowly tasting my way through the best golden drops from Scotland.
In the same way, the many books about travelling all over the world in an old sailboat by Danish seafarer and writer Troels Kløvedals made me learn to travel by the will of the wind and the waves. Later, I headed down to where butter starts to melt, and I have experienced many little tropical islands in and at the ends of the Atlantic and Pacific oceans.”
