A Very Very Very Dark Matter
In a townhouse in Copenhagen works Hans Christian Andersen, a teller of exquisite and fantastic children’s tales beloved by millions. But the true source of his stories dwells in his attic upstairs, her existence a dark secret kept from the outside world.

“It is going to split opinions. I would go again. But, please, don’t take the children.”The Times ★★★★
