“Therese Bohman’s new novel is about a complex relationship and it is really moving. Therese Bohman has built an authorship by portraying human relationships on the borderlines […]. Perhaps the most distinctive thing about Bohman’s novels is how these relationships and nuanced life experiences create space for reflection on contemporary ideas – about femininity, about moralism, about the importance of literature and art. Bohman’s language is as clear and rich as usual, the narration effective and unforced. […] But the relationship portrayed in Andromeda is the most multi-faceted of the authorship so far. It’s also told in a new way, by letting two voices speak. […] It’s elegant in several ways. How the stories flow together, but also diverge. […] Andromeda is so far the most skillful and touching portrayal of what is perhaps the clearest recurring theme in Bohman’s writing – loneliness.”

“A magnificent novel filled with the love of the fair. […] Andromeda is Therese Bohman’s fourth novel and she appears as a full-fledged master.”
“Therese Bohman is a contemporary of Hjalmar Söderberg. […] There is simply some kind of enchantment of the existence when Therese Bohman writes. That elevated sense of life and refinement that the characters in her novel so desperately seek, she herself recreates in her books. It’s grand.”
– Sveriges Radio
“Therese Bohman excels with her demanding novel about the passing of time. Andromeda has a quiet plot. But the captivity of people under the whims of fate is magnificent”.
“Continuously captivating about the friendship between a woman and a man. Therese Bohman writes a beautiful poem about literature, class, the longing for validation and the longing to be understood.”
“Therese Bohman has never written better. Therese Bohman writes about a relationship that cannot be defined with the language of the early 21st century. […] a novel that resists the current trends.”
– Gefle Dagblad
“They live a calm and structured life that gets its dignity and meaning through work. It’s also the description of the love for this work that is Andromeda‘s great asset. So rarely is that feeling included in a novel!”
– Göteborgs Posten
“Heartfelt, touching – and slightly provocative!”
“It is fascinating how a novel with such a driven and well-oiled language, where the pages turn themselves, can simultaneously contain so many depths.”
“When I read her latest, Andromeda, I think of Hjalmar Söderberg. Bohman’s prose is atmospheric with hints of melancholy. And it’s around the incurable loneliness of the soul that the story moves. […] In Andromeda, longing gets its answer in a genuine encounter. The novel is also about the great literature, the lasting works of art and what they give us, about a beautiful life filled with content. That Therese Bohman is an art writer is easy to see in the beautiful prose. The book fall has only just begun, but I’m sure Andromeda will be among the best it has to offer.”
“A story that affects you deeply”.
