Celeste Ng, who is in Denmark promoting her novel Little Fires Everywhere (Små påsatte brande), offered an entertaining Twitter thread for her fans yesterday:
@pronounced_ing: "This morning, for a photo shoot, I set some actual little fires in a bookstore. Photographer: 'Don’t worry! You're in Denmark! It's very difficult to get arrested here!'
"In case you were wondering: we didn't burn any of the books and only one table got a TINY bit singed.
"Also, to set these fires I used these matches that my German publisher gave me, so thanks, @dtv_verlag!
"The bookstore in Copenhagen is very excited about my book.
"Now that I think about it, there was a fire at @TridentBooks the night before I was due to read there, and a big fire at UBS (the bank) in Zurich the day I arrived."
