Sigge Eklund will release his new book this fall with Brombergs Förlag. Earlier this week they released a statement about this new project!
“As we have been waiting for this bright and life-affirming book!
Three years ago we started a conversation with Sigge Eklund about a book with personal reflections on everyday happiness. With joyful wording worthy the literary author he is, Sigge has managed to catch the small moments of life in action.
“Livets små njutningar” offers 47 sensual and zestful observations. Stories that depicts what “low intense” happiness can be. Thoughts we can all recognize ourselves in. We all know exactly how the creamy ice cream tastes, when it melts down the chin. And we shiver from pleasure at the first soft touch about to transform to a breathtaking falling in love. We are pulled to the intense longing for the waves when we slowly are being rocked to sleep in a boat. Sigge Eklund awakens our senses and suddenly simply just being becomes pleasurable.
No one could have thought that this heartwarming book would come in a time of worry and frustration. Even more meaningful to be reminded about the small in the big of life.
The author and podcaster Sigge Eklund lives with his family in the US. The distance, pace and perspective has sharpened his outlook as a Swede. His previous books are “Varulvsvalsen”, “Det är 1988 och har precis börjat snöa”, “In i labyrinten”, “Den sista myten”. Togehter with Alex Schulman: “Tid: livet är inte kronologiskt” and “Rum: en road trip genom psyket”. For eight years they have been running the popular podcast Alex & Sigge.”
