Reviews

A wrenching tale by Swedish novelist and poet Rynell traces a woman's personal journey through shame and violence . . . Rynell proves a fearless writer in this emotionally relentless work and finds a lyrical grace in Marta's self-awareness. --Publishers Weekly

Not a single false note rings in this sonata in minor. --Swedish Daily News

Elisabeth Rynell's language can only be described as breathtakingly beautiful. --Uppsala Daily News

Rynell is one of Sweden's most intense and intensely appreciated storytellers in prose and verse. She never wastes words. --Rika Lesser
