Review:

"`The Woman and the Ape so one of the most gripping books I've read in years. It moved me so deeply that by the end I found myself weeping."

Elizabeth Marshall Thomas, Voice Literary Supplement, Winter/1996

Review:

"A lot of people have been waiting for Peter Hoeg's new novel, people who were captivated by the originality and wit of his 'Smila's Sense of Snow', the surprise best seller of three years ago about a half-Eskimo woman from Copenhagen who solves the mystery of a small boy's death. Some of the spirit of that book has made its way into 'The Woman and the Ape', which also has a main female character of off-center allure. This new novel is similarly shrouded in a vague sense of mystery, and it is written with an epigrammatic grace that reveals Mr. Hoeg as a writer of an especially polished quirkiness....As always with Mr. Hoeg, the writing can sparkle."

Richard Bernstein, New York Times, 12/04/1996
