“It is marvelous reading./…/I have already written that Kristina Sandberg has created, with her earlier books, a unique, marvelous housewife elegy. And it cannot be praised enough, for its amazing insights, its astuteness and its understanding. Maj’s world – a dirge that quietly fades away in the third novel. Sandberg provides a unique female perspective of a 20th century that went by with furious changes.”
One of the most sensitive psychological realists in contemporary Swedish fiction /.../ The condensed nature of the text forms an immediate flow which the reader is sucked into without
resistance. It is complex but not complicated, and it confirms Kristina Sandberg’s position as one of the most sensitive psychological realists in contemporary Swedish fiction.
