Alt det jeg ikke husker – Book cover, Gyldendal
A basic question in Jonas Hassen Khemiri’s novel Alt det jeg ikke husker (All That I Cannot Remember, translated from the Swedish Allt jag inta minns) is what really happened? When memories and interpretations of the past are fundamentally at odds with each other, who’s to say what happened and why?
On the cover is a circular doodle swiftly made with a black marker. It’s ambiguous, unusual, and strangely appropriate for a story of lost memories.
