What a great read! The writer seduced me into his world in much the same mesmerising way that Bergman might do in one of his films. A wonderful novel
Fascinating ... an honest, empathetic and respectful account of creativity, flowing from a unique mind to affect other people's lives, made with Bergmanesque spareness and attention to detail, a vivid tribute to the Shakespeare of our age.
Paul Binding, Independent on Sunday
A Scandinavian version of Fellini's Eight and a Half, the novel melts the imagined and remembered. It also catches the physical atmosphere of Sweden, both warming and chill - like Bergman's relationships.
