From the Inside Flap:

Peter Høeg has proven himself a daring literary novelist and a thrilling suspense writer. Now, with this collection of interlaced tales set in Africa, Portugal and Denmark, Høeg unveils his masterful storytelling ability, echoing the literary styles of Joseph Conrad and Karen Blixen.

From a railroad car in the Congo to a ship off Lisbon to an upper class apartment in Copenhagen, these tales all occur on March 29, 1929, as Western and non-Western cultures confront each other in love, hate and science.

About the Author:

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.
