I am now on my third Høeg book, and have another waiting for me at my local library. I am very intrigued with the way this man writes. His observations cut as keenly as a scalpel.
I feel the same way about solitude as some people feel about the blessing of the church. It’s the light of grace for me. I never close my door behind me without the awareness that I am carrying out an act of mercy towards myself.
~Peter Høeg (Smilla’s Sense of Snow, p. 11 )
