APS TOGETHER

Dependency by Tove Ditlevsen Day 6

February 23, 2022 | Part II, Chapters 1-3

Dive into the descriptions of Carl! He has no soul, but he has teeth like a piranja, moves like a ghost and he drinks urine! “There’s nothing as sterile as piss” he says. What a character!



The horror unfolding around her is described with brutal honesty, and sardonic humor. I love this: “I wouldn’t recommend having any children with him. When he says that I realize that my period is a few days late.” Blunt! Not feeling sorry for herself!



Just as we didn’t think Carl could be described in more chilling ways, this sentence pierces us: “‘I love passive women,’ he said.” The scenes where he “takes her” when she’s high on demerol are unforgettable.
