Most new-ish fiction and poetry I've read tends to be in Danish, most of it not translated.
Probably slanted towards recent or current interests.
I made some Andy shortcuts when it comes to publication date, since there isn't one "quicksource" like imdb and most are out in severeal editions and translations, which makes it hard/tiring to browse your memory for nominees.
It occurs to me how little I remember now from those books.
All a waste of time I guess.
