Excellent review! I thought it was my absent-mindedness and my quick reading that prevented me from recognizing who the 'he' was each time! It happens to me to think this, especially when I read in English (not my first language).

I literally gobbled this novel (I'm also a Tudor fan!) and I can't wait for the follow-up!

Wow, I can't imagine reading this one in a second language ... Amazing!

  • Isak is a space to celebrate tales and truth in the curious, joyful way embodied by the writer for which it is named. The name "Isak," after all, means "laughter," as she was fond of pointing out.

    By tales, I mean fiction (especially short fiction), as well as other literary and artistic narratives. By truth, I mean the world in which we live. I especially have my eye on creative social justice.
