Inhaltsangabe: Love as violence, love as a curse, love as redemption, as suffering, as wisdom, as innocence, as delusion - each story takes place on the night of 19 March 1929 and a character tries to understand or express love from his or her perspective: as dancer, lawyer, astronomer, mathematician, artist, actor, doctor, mirror-maker. This book, inhabited by real and imagined characters at the mid point between the two world wars, was an early landmark in a career that includes the controversial novel Borderliners and perhaps the most attractive thriller of the decade, Miss Smilla's Feeling for Snow.
Rezension: PETER HOEG was born in 1957 and followed callings - dancer, actor, sailor, mountaineer - before he turned seriously to writing. After publishing the present volume of stories and his first novel, The History of Danish Dreams, "a vaultingly ambitious and hugely accomplished first novel" in the opinion of Peter Whittaker, New Statesman & Society, he went on to write the innovative crime novel, Miss Smilla's Feeling for Snow, which assured him an international reputation. The variety of his talent was amply demonstrated with his subsequent novels, Borderlines, a remarkable study of children that caused controversy within Denmark and beyond, and the recent satirical ecological fable, The Woman and the Ape.
