In 1972, he became a member of the Danish Academy. He passed away in 2018. 


"...cleverly plotted stories...deceptively casual, ingratiating first-person narrative style to draw the reader in, then explode into bizarre comedy." —Booklist

"Sense of humor, insight into the human personality, and acute observation make this collection both readable and significant." —Scandinavian American Bulletin
