Peter H eg was born in 1957 and followed various callings - dancer, actor, fencer, sailor, mountaineer - before he turned seriously to writing. He published his first novel in 1988, a book which was acclaimed in Denmark by Information as evidence enough that H eg was 'the foremost writer of his generation'. It is now published in English as The History of Danish Dreams. With the publication of his crime novel Miss Smilla's feeling for Snow he achieved an international reputation and found a settled place of the bestseller lists.

We guarantee it will make you shiver." * Independent on Sunday, Greatest Holiday Reads Ever * "An Arctic tale worthy of Conrad - New Statesman"
