Two of Sweden’s most prominent literary voices, Susanna Alakoski and Anne Swärd have had their latest novels published in Finland.
The Cotton Angel
Susanna Alakoski’s Cotton Angel is a powerful novel about
the exposure girls endure, about female friendships and
women’s constant thirst for knowledge.
It is a story about how the times that we live
in can determine our lives far more than the choices we are ever able to make.
Anne Swärd’s latest novel is about a young woman
on her way to Stockholm and the life that is waiting for her there.
It’s the warm summer of 1988, nothing has happened yet.
The man she ends up meeting is beyond anything she could ever imagine.
Jackie is a story about love, obsession and survival.
