*  *  *  *  *  * Jesper Wung-Sung knows how to create an atmosphere in way that very few writers can; it takes hold from the very first page – without the reader quite being able to put a finger on what Wung-Sung has done so well. You are drawn into his fictional universe, you feel with his characters. - KultuNaut 


… this is wonderfully observed and utterly engagingly told. Jesper Wung-Sung challenges himself again and again (…) he writes with great vitality in a powerful, mellifluous language. - Skolebiblioteket
