Sinopsis: Each of these nine stories shows a different fact of love - love of violence, love as redemption, love as suffering, even as wisdom - and each has as a background theme one of the nine classical disciplines: mathematics, dance, law, physics, visual arts, medicine, drama, music and astronomy.
Críticas: 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.
