Inhaltsangabe: Acclaimed novel based on the life and death of Hans Christian Andersen
'Dalager's empathy with his subject is fervent and he is a skilled writer, having accrued a distinguished reputation in Europe with five novels and a number of plays. Journey In Blue has a febrile glow of authenticity: its Andersen is real?offers a valuable insight into a stunted genius. ' - Michel Faber , Guardian --Guardian
'Stig Dalager s fictional biography of Hans Christian Andersen finds the writer at the end of his life, recollecting his past in impressionistic, morphine-influenced episodes. Of the many books published in Andersen s bicentenary this one comes nearest to explaining to non-Danes the troubled reverence in which the master storyteller is held by his compatriots.' London Review of Books --London Review of Books
What gives Dalager's novel its real distinction is its picture of a lifelong apartness, with acceptance and love as unrealisable goals. The situation of the old man is foreshadowed many times in the life. Andersen never ceased to be, and to feel, the vulnerable outsider, and Dalager's accounts of his compulsive travelling have power. As Auden said about another great traveller and giver of delight, Edward Lear: through his wanderings the writer himself "became a land". Paul Binding, Independent --Independent
