LIVET, MOTORCYKLAR OCH ANDRA OMÖJLIGA PROJEKT – UNEASY RIDER
By Katarina Bivald
THE SUMMER ANETTE Grankvist turned 18 she set herself three goals in life. She was going to learn how to drive a motorcycle, buy a house and become completely independent.
NINETEEN YEARS LATER, Anette has managed to become wholly self-reliant, the other items on her list are still elusively unfulfilled. The state of things was endurable – enjoyable even – while her daughter lived at home. But when Emma leaves home to start university, Anette soon realises that she is left with an abundance of what she’s been missing for the past couple of decades: time.
WHAT BETTER WAY to spend her time than to start taking motorcycle lessons; jump straight into an impossible project; get to know her own slightly senile mother; and throw herself head over heels into romance?
AS IT TURNS out, looking for ways to spend one’s free time and searching for adventure can lead to the most unexpected complications…
