Two more tales of memory, nature, travel and collecting from the author of the Swedish bestseller The Fly Trap.
Fredrik Sjoberg collects hoverflies on the island of Runmar , in the archipelago east of Stockholm. He is also a literary critic, translator, cultural columnist and the author of several books, including The Fly Trap and The Raisin King, which form a trilogy with The Art of Flight.
Digressive, discursive and delightful. -- Michael Kerr * Telegraph
A joy . . . Fredrik Sjoeberg's best-selling memoir The Fly
Trap marked him as a maestro of the episodic. Here, he
completes a trilogy.
Delightful, at once informative and often humorously digressive . . . a humane man of wide-ranging curiosity, Sjoeberg writes with infectious passion.* Independent *
