by Dagerman, Stig (translated from the Swedish by Alan Blair)
New York: William Morrow & Company. Very Good in Good dj. . First American Edition. Hardcover. [moderate shelfwear to book, light dust-soiling and minor spotting to top edge; jacket has small tears at several corners, a little nick at bottom of front panel, spine a little browned]. "The first of this talented young Swedish writer's books to appear in English, [it is] the story of the powerful and complex emotional struggles of a twenty-year-old boy who, after the death of his mother, finds himself overwhelmed by his feelings not only of grief, but of hatred, jealousy, love and vengeance." The author's third novel (originally published in 1948), it all sounds pretty grim, but no more so than his own life: after a long struggle with depression and writer's block, he committed suicide in 1954 at the age of 31. His books are still in print today, however, his works and legacy kept alive by the Stig Dagerman Society and by his daughter Lo Dagerman. . (Inventory #: 22578)
