NEGAR NASEH (B. 1984) made her debut as an author in 2013 with the novel During All This Winter. During All This Winter is partly a novel about a complicated mother-daughter relationship with the Westrobothnian forests as backdrop, but it also consists of a work journal about the writing process: a way of inviting the reader to a conversation about reading and writing. The book was praised by critics and nominated for the Borås Tidning’s Debutant Prize 2014. 

NASEH’S SECOND NOVEL The Displaced, a psychological drama set in contemporary Europe, was published 2016. A Swedish couple living in Sicily is struggling with everyday problems while the migrant crisis is going on in the background. The cold in Westrobothnia is replaced with Sicily’s broiling heat. With a severe and restrained language Naseh explores middle class indifference and “white melancholy.”

HER LATEST BOOK A Handful of Wind is a novel about fight and flight, about vulnerability and solidarity. 

NASEH LIVES IN Uppsala and also works as a doctor.
