Peter Hoeg's first novel is an interweaving of the lives and loves of four families, within which histories time expands, clocks stop or race forward at will.
The dreams and disappointments of the children of the author's magnificent imagination foreshadow the themes of Miss Smilla's Feeling for Snow and Borderliners.
