Description


"An elegant, postmodern fairy tale." --Jacob Hoefer, Bookseller, Labyrinth Books

Away Away -- a new novel from Jana Beňov , winner of the European Union Prize for Literature Sometimes running away is the bravest option. Or, so believes Rosa, who ditches her husband and home and takes off on the road. Along the way, she encounters the owner of a puppet theater who's on a mission to conquer the world with his performance of The Snow Queen.

Which character from this old fairy tale will Rosa identify with? With Gerda, searching fruitlessly for her lost love? With Kai, who flees home and his beloved one day without a word? Or with the Snow Queen, who seems to stand aloof above it all?

With magnetic, sparkling prose, Beňov delivers a lively mosaic that ruminates on human relationships, our greatest fears and desires.
