To my great joy, the Swedish Book Review recently published a critique of my novel about Händel, Mitt grymma öde, written by the dutch translater Janny Middelbeek-Oortgiesen. She describes it as a "whirling roller coaster ride through the baroque age" and also compares it to one of my favorite swedish writers:
"Edenborg presents his story in a lively, bombastic style, dark and
colourful at the same time, with hedonistic scenes, highs and lows, in
which he brings Handel to life as a fat, ugly megalomaniac, full of
self-contempt but capable of great insight into human character.
Edenborg’s style reminds me of that of another Swedish writer, the
famous Sven Delblanc, who was a master of the mixture of solemnity and
vulgarity, of baroque writing, fine metaphors and very refined
characterisation. And who, by the way, also wrote a novel on the life of
some famous castrato singers, Kastrater (The Castrati, 1975)."
