About the book
Sold toDenmark: Storytel
As Annika is about to turn fifty, her daughter gives her a diary and asks her to write about her life. Reluctantly, Annika promises to write, at least once or twice a week. But what is there to write about? How thrilling can it be to follow a fifty-year-old woman in Gothenburg?
Against all odds it turns out to be an eventful year in her life – delightful evenings with friends and wine, as well as a meditation camp in the countryside. The hot flashes of menopause and day-to-day life as a doctor. A reliable partner and a handsome, twenty-year younger medical intern. And if that wasn’t enough, there is also the strained relationship with her mother and sister. Middle life is not entirely uncomplicated.
The Diary I Never Wrote is a hilarious, cosy and genuine page-turner – a middle-aged Bridget Jones in Gothenburg.
