You disappoint me Jens, says Marie. But she should be quiet. Dead and silent. And don't comment on everything. In her mind she guards his every move. He can't even have his morning erection alone.

Jens is an old man who lives the quiet life. Right up until the day a cupboard door slides open and he has to look for the patch Marie has apparently hidden away. In his search, he finds her diary, and now stories of mental illness, young impossible love and systematic blackmail come pouring out in the tight slanted letters.

Despite the budding spring outside, Jens is blown away. Who was Marie really Can you talk about a future when you are approaching eighty? And is it really necessary to cycle all the way through Jutland to escape Marie's voice?

Jens Petersens forlængede forår is, despite Marie's harsh manner, a beautiful tale of being set free. And about finding yourself, albeit at a late age.

Cecilie Overbye , born 1973, is a dentist from the University of Copenhagen.

Jens Petersens forlængede forår is her debut novel.
