Århundradets kärlekskrig

- En punktroman

The Love War of the Century

by Ebba Witt-Brattström

A marital break-down in the mendacious paradise of equality. Two voices: a woman and a man who have lived together half a life.

Through the dialogue you can hear the last, pounding heartbeats of their shared existence. What was once great love has turned into a drawn out struggle. It is brutal, quick-witted, naked, piteous, and so infinitely sad.

“He said:
If you desert me
you will have only life-long hate
ahead of you.

She said:
I think either
you or I
must die.”

Århundradets kärlekskrig is a novel in paragraph format, influenced by Märta Tikkanen's classic novel Århundradets kärlekssaga/The Love Story of the Century from 1978.

He said:

If you desert me

you will have only life-long hate

ahead of you.

 

She said:

I think either

you or I

must die.
