Leif Panduro

Leif Thormod Panduro (18 April 1923 - 16 January 1977) was a Danish novelist and dramatist. A dentist by profession, he began in his thirties to write stories about people who can't conform to society's rules for one reason or another. Rend mig i traditionerne (Kick me in the traditions) is about an adolescent who finally ends up in an asylum because he thinks society is mad. Fern fra Danmark (Mr. Fern from Denmark) is about a man who wakes up in a hospital with amnesia but discovers more and more about a not very pleasant self. Panduro's books and plays grew increasingly pessimistic about the orderly middle-class society and its senseless norms.
