About the Author

Jonas Hassen Khemiri is the author of novels (including Everything I Don't Remember and Montecore), plays (such as I Call My Brothers), and a collection of plays, essays, and short stories (Invasion!). Among his many honors are the August Prize, the highest literary award for Swedish literature; the Enquist Literary Prize; the Borås Tidning Award for Best Literary Debut Novel; and an Obie Award. His novels have been translated into more than thirty languages, and his plays have been performed by more than one hundred companies around the world. He lives in Stockholm, Sweden.


"This is a wonderful and mysterious book. Close to a journalistic or criminal investigation, every sentence trembles with Khemiri's electrifying prose. A very original tour de force that still vibrated in my mind long after I had read the last page."--Herman Koch, New York Times bestselling author of The Dinner
"Unforgettable. In this non-putdownable puzzle of a story, Khemiri manages to both thrill and break your heart."--Gary Shteyngart, New York Times bestselling author of Super Sad True Love Story and Little Failure
"Heartbreakingly sad and laugh-out-loud funny. Its chorus of young drifters, romantics and cynics stick in the memory, each competing to tell their own truth about Samuel and his tragic death." - Hari Kunzru, bestselling author of Gods Without Men--Hari Kunzru, bestselling author of Gods Without Men
"An enthralling jigsaw-puzzle of a book. Part love story, part reflection on loss, on memory, this smart, one-of-a-kind literary novel is both beautiful and heartbreaking. This is storytelling at its best."--Jennifer McMahon, New York Times bestselling author of The Night Sister
"With its energetic prose and innovative structure, Everything I Don't Remember confirms that Jonas Hassen Khemiri is not only one of Sweden's best authors, but a great talent of our time."--Vendela Vida, author of The Diver's Clothes Lie Empty
"A wonderful exploration of human motivation - why we love, hate, crave, and reject each other. Khemiri writes with an acute sense of perspective and his clean, conceptual prose is gripping from start to finish."--Nikita Lalwani, author of Booker Prize-nominated Gifted
"Compelling...In this painful novel about youthful optimism gone hopelessly wrong, Khemiri dramatizes such immigration-related issues as failures in elder care, unemployment and dead-end jobs, drug abuse, and racial prejudice."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"A 'must' for those interested in narrative voice."--Library Journal
