Special Feature

Hjalmar Bergman's MEMOIRS OF A DEAD MAN, translated by Neil Smith

Hjalmar Bergman: Memoirs of a Dead Man

Hjalmar Bergman (1883-1931) is widely regarded as one of the foremost Swedish novelists of the twentieth century. A genuinely unique voice in European literature, despite comparisons to Mann, Proust and Kafka, Bergman's early work is characterized by impressionistic textual experimentation, complemented by a blend of comedy and tragedy in his later years. Bergman's novel Memoirs of a Dead Man (1918), to be launched by Norvik Press in 2007, stands at the centre of his oeuvre. A saga of a cursed family, the novel offers a biting parody of consumer society and an enthralling depiction of small-town Sweden and decadent Hamburg.
