Jessica Schiefauer received the August Prize 2015 for her novel THE EYES OF THE LAKE!

Motivation: One year. The year when Ester and Isak meet. The year when Isak’s brother, Anton, is lured into a world of hate, swastikas and violence. The year when a boy is murdered. Jessica Schiefauer’s novel explains how easy it is to be influenced, the desire to belong. But it is just as much a story about love, a love so immersive that it becomes destructive. The prose is poetic, condensed and flows like the water that becomes a spectator to the tragedy unfolding. It is a carefully polished prose – to document this horrific chain of events. 

Her previous novel THE BOYS (Pojkarna) also received the August Prize (2011) and Jessica Schiefauer is now among a small exclusive group of  authors (all categories) that have received the prize twice since the award was first given in 1989.

This summer Ester and Isaac fall madly in love. This summer their love will be tarnished, crumbled and resurrected. This summer a young boy is killed and Isaac’s brother was there when it happened.
