Johannes Riis on Love, Tove (Letters to a Publisher)
"Love, Tove" is a collection of letters from 1969 to 1975 of Tove Ditlevsen's correspondence with Mogens Knudsen, the then director of Gyldendal. The letters stand, except for obvious typos and two or three omitted sentences at the request of her heirs, unedited.
In 1969, Tove Ditlevsen changed publishers to Gyldendal, where her editor became her great confidante. With him she discussed problems with everything from intrusive fan and annoying girlfriends to problems with alcohol and conflict with doctors. It was also in those years that she went through the divorce from Victor Andreasen.
"Love, Tove" is a comprehensive example of what a relationship between writer and editor can look like, and at the same time it is a unique insight into a fragile human being who is also one of Denmark's greatest writers of all time.
