Published Works
Danny Hahn is the author of the novels The Tragedy at Aberystwyth Castle, The Deformed Visitor, and Second Sleep, as well as the essay Quiet Cinema. Working as a consultant developmental editor, Danny has edited numerous academic works, including the book Performing Beethoven’s Violin Concerto.

Background
Much of his creative work is influenced by childhood memories: a mountaineer by heart, he spent his youth in the Alpine valleys of Switzerland where his father grew up, and the mountainous hinterland of Ceredigion in Wales where his mother was born. Many subjects explored in his commentary writing stem from his international experience in the arts: as well as being a Berlinale Talent alumnus, he trained as a classical violinist at the Guildhall School of Music and studied film at The London College of Printing, then worked as a composer in Finland, a drama teacher and film university lecturer in London, a manager at various multi-arts centres in the UK, and a book editor and recording producer for his father Professor Detlef Hahn in Norway and Switzerland.

Style 
In his non-fiction works, Danny’s field of interests explore phenomenology and cultural history, especially concerning the perception of music, films, and dreams. With an interest in cultivating genre writing and biographical narrative, Danny’s fiction writing style is ironic, descriptive and poetic, and although his novels involve themes such as mental health and solitude, he is a humorous writer with a talent for expressing the comical absurdities of life.
