"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.
