'Katinka' is the story of a Danish woman's domestic unhappiness. The main character, Katinka, is the wife of the insensitive and womanizing stationmaster Bai. Her life revoles around the coming and going of the trains and catering to her husband's whims until the sensitive foreman Huus moves into the neighbor and makes her realize how much she is missing. The story is simple and the prose is crystal clear. Herman Bang is considered to be an "impressionist" writer. This books is a pleasure to read. Watch for the symbolic consumption! ( )
