“Botany on LSD, a Grimm’s fairy tale for adults (…) Rosarium is a formidable novel and just like its cover, lush, wild, puzzling and fantastic. Wow – I cannot remember ever reading anything like it” Berlingske Tidene
Rosarium is a wild-growing, lush and deeply original novel about a young girl who takes root in the forest and a botanist who goes searching for a very unusual rose.
Spanning over three generations and several continents, at times echoing a dark and surreal Brothers Grimm-fairytale, this is a beautiful, riveting story about people, plants and biology. A poetic and disquieting take on the relationship between humans and nature from one of Denmark’s most innovative literary authors.
