The History of Danish Dreams: A Novel by Peter Heg

From the author ofSmillas Sense of Snowcomes this highly imaginative novel, wonderful in scope . . . crammed with Danish history, social realism, satire, magic realism, high romance, and sexualgoings-on (Newsday). In a Danish feudal castle, 1520, a count believes he has pinpointed the center of the universe--a patch of land on his estate. But when his discovery is met with disbelief, he walls off his mansion and has all of the clocks stopped. Four centuries pass instantaneously, and the counts young secretary, Carl, emerges from isolation to find a world bursting with war, innovation, love, sexuality, danger, and all the values of thenbsp;sixteenth century turned upside down as though by supernatural forces--namely, the force of history. From one of our most gifted international writers comes a dazzling epic fairy tale, a tough fable about the gifts and iniquities of progress.
