Gruesome black thriller set in Sweden
The Ventriloquist’s Tale
Era(s): 1920s and present day
The whole purpose of magic is the fulfilment and intensification of desire, claims the ventriloquist-narrator as he tells his stories of love and catastrophe.
The novel is a parable of miscegenation and racial exclusiveness, of nature defying culture and of the rebellious nature of love.
