Lara Biyuts about this book: Set in Europe in 1912, the novel is written in the form of travel notes by Oscar Maria Graf, observant globe-trotter, younger contemporary of Oscar Wilde. A Stenbock-like figure, by his origin and his dabbling in literature, Oscar Graf is much hotter, more active and pragmatic than Eric Stenbock (1860-1895) whose friend he used to be in virtue of his living in London. The historical "Through the Baltic Looking-Glass" is previously self-published in a series of 9 books. PART 1 "In the Island. Adventures": The series of his adventures in the fictional island in the Mediterranean Sea ends when he receives a message from his homeland in the fictional Baltic country Nyomanland.
