Hvilken bog repræsenterer dit land?

04-04-2018 af Sabrine Mønsted

Bøger kan føre os ind i andre kulturer. Ambassadører over hele verden har givet deres bud på, hvilken bog der bedst repræsenterer deres land.

En bog kan give os en forsmag på en destination og inspirere os til at tage nye steder hen. Det er tanken bag rejsearrangøren Travel Birds projekt, hvor de har bedt ambassadører give deres bud på bøger, der bedst repræsenterer deres land.

En spansk ambassadør peger på bogen Don Quixote af Miguel de Cervantes som idiosynkratisk for Spanien. En svensk ambassadør nævner blandt andet Niels Holgersens forunderlige rejse af Selma Lagerlöf, Pippi Langstrømpe af Astrid Lindgren og Jeg er Zlatan Ibrahimovic. En dansk ambassadør, udstationeret i Finland, har svaret Karen Blixen og H.C. Andersen, hvis man skal have en smag af Danmark. Se resten af ambassadørernes bud på bøger herunder:
