Manfred Jurgensen was born between Denmark and Germany in the coastal border town of Flensburg in 1940, a ‘midnight child’. He has always been sensitive to boundaries and what’s beyond the borders, emotionally and physically. He has chosen to reveal his life history - to a very large extent dominated by World War II and its aftermath - in a highly original and unusual form. The protagonist and his lifetime experiences are wrapped within a semi-fictional presentation that he suggests might be called ‘autofiction’, or perhaps a ‘bio-novel’. Throughout the narrative he philosophises about the nature of ‘coincidence’ as a life-force.
