Vill gå hem

Want to Go Home

by Jonas Gardell

Vill gå hem/Want to Go Home is a tentative, humorous and melancholy description of a terribly ordinary family. It is about the two middle aged sisters Rut and Rachel, Rut living a seemingly happy and proper family life, Rachel with the flabby Valter, who does not care about her and for whose sake she has given up a part of her life. Rachel finally leaves Valter and drops down with her sister whose life is completely turned up side down.

Vill gå hem is a funny and insightful novel about love that fails, about strong emotions that do not come out right and about the unprecedented will to live and to be happy.
