The first lines of a novel or short story must grab the reader’s attention, enticing them to continue past the first page and continue reading. The first sentence allows you to showcase your writing style, introduce your main character or establish the inciting incident of your narrative.

The first sentence in the book Banna & Nia written by Jeanette Nyberg

It will be released at Lange Publisher in 2024, as an eBook, Audiobook and Printed book in Swedish, Danish and English

I think of you when I masturbate”, he had said and laughed mockingly.

What is it about?

Banna and Nia, invite 12 strange women to dinner in an abandoned factory. The idea came about after Banna was told one day at work by a customer that she was his masturbation object.

The comment prompts her to try to bring about a change. Together with Nia, they write a script without a finished ending for the intended evening.

The initiative would offer much more than they could imagine or even prepare for.

Banna & Nia depict a society in the aftermath of the #Metoo movement. The book draws inspiration from Maria Skaringer and Anna Mannheimer’s podcast.
