Dvärgarnas Dans

Dance of the dwarfs
"Dance of the Dwarfs" by Anne Marie Løn. Tyge Willhof-Holm, 32, plays the organ and is a dwarf. He is the youngest of nine children on the big estate Willhofsgave but is from the outset treated equally to his seven beautiful sisters and handsome older brother. One spring day in 1922 he plays at a funeral and sees a profile of a woman in the mirror. He falls madly in love. It appears their pasts and futures are linked together and during a couple of weeks, Tyge tells his own and his family life story. The book is a compelling story where science is put up against feelings, emotions, conventions and the power of being on the outside. It goes without saying that the story told by Anne Marie Løn is the story of the last owner of Hofmansgave, Niels-Erik Hofman-Bang and his family. Prof. Niels Hofman-Bang has contributed heavily to this book and the author spent lengthy period with him to collect information and details about the life of the Hofman-Bang family at Hofmansgave. (Bilda Förlag, 2000, 292 pages).
