Letters to and from Nini Roll Anker

    Nini Roll Anker (1873–1942) was a Norwegian novelist and playwright, close friend of acclaimed Norwegian novelist Sigrid Undset (1882–1949), who emigrated to Norway with her family at the age of two but was forced to flee her adopted homeland when it was invaded by Nazi Germany. Anker and Undset corresponded regularly, and 140 letters and postcards to Anker from Undset have survived, many of them describing Undset’s extended travels in Europe before the outbreak of World War I. An edition of Undset’s early letters to Anker was published in 2021.
