We are happy to welcome the critically acclaimed author Åsa Ericsdotter to the agency!
Åsa made her literary debut as a 17 year old, with the strong prose lyric novel Oskyld, a story about love, passion and pain that immediately gave her a role as one of Sweden’s most interesting young authors. At the August Prize gala in the fall of 1998 she received a mention of honor.
Her latest novel The Epidemic is a dark depiction of a future not far over the horizon where hysteria about diets and political propaganda have turned discrimination into the norm. This is a violent political allegory of rising right-wing extremism in Europe, and about prejudice and scapegoats, food addiction, and political personality cults. A scary vision of how discrimination becomes normalized and how easily we can be deceived.
