One of Us Is Sleeping by Josefine Klougart is both wonderfully simple and heart-achingly complex. The prose, beautiful and poetic, demands a closer reading than most novels. Reading between the lines and interpreting the emotions for yourself is sometimes a struggle but one which is rewarded many times over.

These are reflections for the most part and so present a nonlinear narrative if one is looking for a novel that travels from one place to another. Perhaps a better approach is to avoid the traveling concept of plot and accept this as something we all do on occasion, which is spend time reflecting back and forth through time but from a stationary point in time.

This will not appeal to everyone (of course, this can be said for every book), especially those who want a plot that whisks along at a breakneck pace or explain a character's thoughts in simple non-poetic form. For those who enjoy pondering life's many twists and turns along with the protagonist, this will be a wonderful experience. Some of the passages shed new light on some of my own conflicts in life, and that is an uncommon occurrence in many novels.
