Smile of a Midsummer Night: A Picture of Sweden

In stock
A knowledgeable, loving and poetic account of a journey across his country by one of Sweden's most renowned and revered writers. Gustafsson paints an evocative portrait of his homeland.
Lars Gustafsson and Agneta Blomqvist have written a personal guide to their Swedish homeland.

Setting off from the south their journey leads them all the way up to Norrland, from the farms of Scania to the Laponian area, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. But it is the idyllic fjord in Bohuslan, in the Vastmanland region, as well as Lake Malar and Stockholm that they call home.

Alive with their varied interests and entertaining suggestions for excursions - from journeys across the forests and moors to collect berries and mushrooms, encountering the odd elk or wolf along the way, to visits to the graves of Kurt Tucholsky and Strindberg, 'Smile of a Midsummer Night' is knowledgeable, loving and poetic. A must-have for all fans of Sweden.
