Moving from a railroad car in the Congo to a sailboat in Lisbon's harbor, these eight classic tales deal with love, the classic arts and sciences, and the confrontation of Western and non-Western cultures.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.
