Overview Blåtimesonater

In Charlotte Vaillot Knudsen’s poetry collection Blue Hour Sonatas a woman and a man meet over a plate of venus clams and sweet music arises between them. They play together: Her on the violin, him on the piano. However when he finds a new muse, she resorts to cleverness and magic to save their love. Blue Hour Sonatas is an ecstatic and fabulous story which moves forward in hot soil, amongst flickering will-o'-the-wisps, witch storms and flaming opera scenes.

"Smashing melodrama steeped in a flaringly intricate imagery, magenta-dripping – to quote – word creations and a pleasing playfulness with typography."

Årets beste bøker 02.12.2023

«Knæsjt melodrama, dynket i et blussende intrikat billedspråk, magentadryppende – for å sitere – orddannelser og deilig lek med typografien.»

Sindre Andersen, Klassekampen
