Last novel from Anna Enquist

Novelist Anna Enquist is to stop writing books, she tells the October issue of feminist magazine Opzij.

Her new and last book Contrapunt, due out in October, is about her daughter who was killed in 2001 when she was hit by a lorry.
Enquist began writing when she found her piano skills would never reach the level she hoped for. ‘But now I am playing more again, I do not need a replacement activity,’ she tells Opzij.
