MIN FRIHET – BESOIN DE LIBERTÉ

BY LARSSON, BJÖRN

It is his own life Björn Larsson choose to write about this time. How he worked for the freedom that is present in all his novels, and the common thread that unites all his characters, whether it is the pirate Long John Silver, Inga Andersson, or the captain Marcel.

Carefully Björn Larsson shares what life has taught him along the way: that freedom requires equality and reciprocity, that one can not be free without imagination and dreams, but also realism and self-discipline, that freedom requires a measure of loneliness and the need to compromise with love. And that the main characteristic of those who have a great need for freedom is courage: not to do like everyone else, not to follow the whims of fashion or hypocritical assume uniform, but also in a time of individualism and conformism dare raise his voice in favor of the need of friendship, tolerance and solidarity.
