CIGARETTE by Per Hagman is no exception; a staggeringly bold depiction of hedonism, loneliness, and a refusal to come of age in late 90’s Stockholm, CIGARETTE deserves a place among the classics of of alt outcast fuck up novels.
Per Hagman seems to be the most pronounced storyteller talent there is within the male part of the 90’s generation.
Like Coupland’s Generation X without the irony. Or Michel Houellebecq without the disdain. […] Loved it.
Drew Gummersson, author
Cigarette is a generational novel screaming of loneliness, rootlessness and betrayal…
Per Hagman is a master in depicting society.
A world of ecstasy, video, synthetic rock and cable-tv, liberating free from literary allusions and “nice” images. Good hard boiled prose.
