Description

One man's fortune holds the key to a nation's fate in this sensational debut novel set in 18th-century Sweden.

The Stockholm Octavo by Karen Engelmann transports readers to a colorful Scandinavian world of intrigue and magic in a dazzling golden age of high art, music, and opulent fashion.

A masterwork of historical fiction in the vein of Patrick Suskind's classic novel, Perfume, Karen Engelmann's The Stockholm Octavo is mysterious and romantic--as magical and enthralling as The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern--and features a brilliant and unforgettable cast of extraordinary characters.

display_descriptionLife is close to perfect for Emil Larsson, a self-satisfied bureaucrat in the Office of Customs and Excise in 1791 Stockholm. He is a true man of the Town -- a drinker, card player, and contented bachelor -- until one evening when Mrs. Sofia Sparrow, a fortune-teller and proprietor of an exclusive gaming parlor, shares with him a vision she has had: a golden path that will lead him to love and connection. She lays an Octavo for him, a spread of eight cards that augur the eight individuals who can help him realize this vision -- if he can find them.
