In this remarkable Swedish memoir about grief and guilt, memory and intimacy, she explores the nature of bereavement itself - the difficulty of learning to live with the ones we love, and the trials of living without them. 'The most compelling book I've read in years' The Times 'It's impossible not to draw comparisons with Karl Ove Knausgaard. I absolutely loved it' Evening Standard 'Every spare, controlled sentence has the ring of truth. Gripping' Daily Mail

Recensioner i media

This book! Swedish, confessional, shockingly honest about desire, love, loss. I've read it twice now and can't stop thinking about Carolina. Utterly compulsive -- Marian Keyes Painfully clear-sighted, unsentimental . . . It's about grief in all its raw messiness * Daily Mail * Brutally candid. The book's power lies in Setterwall's lacerating honesty. It's the most compelling book I've read in years * The Times * Quite simply one of the best bereavement memoirs I've read. It's impossible not to draw comparisons with Karl Ove Knausgaard, but there is a unique voice here, a style of disclosure all her own, incidentally beautifully translated. It's an emotional battering ram, I thought, and I absolutely loved it * Evening Standard * Heart-wrenching and unsettling -- Rowan Coleman, internationally bestselling author Moving, tender . . . Depicts the obsessive interiority of grief * Kirkus Reviews * The kind of book that you'll never forget. It gets under your skin. It moves into the heart. The story is so vulnerable and direct that one cannot avoid caring for the people it is about, and to love them . . . I have never read a book that, so beautifully, puts into words how difficult it is to live without - but also to live with - the one you love. One of the best, most touching and most relevant books I've ever read * Randiglensbo.dk * An electrifying read. A book that forces itself upon you, impossible to resist and difficult to pause * Dagens Nyheter (Sweden) * A rich, honest, and poignant portrayal of the many dimensions of grief * Alba.Nu * One of the best books I've ever read . . . You're drawn into her raw grief, anger, guilt, bitterness, fear and loss - all of it, without any filter . . . Real and alive * Sidses Bogreol * Breathtaking . . . Astoundingly well told * NWT * A magnificent reading experience * Magasinet Liv * Honest and unvarnished . . . Setterwall writes about the many nuances of grief, but also about love, family life and expectations of life before and after tragedy * Litteratursiden.dk *
