| Book Description: |
Stig Dagerman (1923-1954) is regarded as the most talented young writer of the Swedish post-war generation. This selection, containing a number of new translations of Dagerman's stories never before published in English, is unified by the theme of the loss of innocence. Often narrated from a child's perspective, the stories give voice to childhood's tender state of receptiveness and joy tinged with longing and loneliness.
