Softcover with flaps. Publisher: Förlaget M | Utg. 2019 | Softcover with flaps | 137 p. | This book is brand new. | Language: Svenska --- Information regarding the book: Titelnovellen i novellsamlingen Brev från Klara tecknar bilden av en barsk, sanningssägande äldre kvinna. Den genomträngande blicken som ser alla människans skiftningar, även de mindre klädsamma, är också författarens blick, men till skillnad från Klara ser Tove Jansson alltid sina karaktärer också med en lågmäld humor och förståelse, även i deras mörkaste stunder. Flera av novellerna behandlar ålderdom här finns Titelnovellens Klara som har tänkt ut ett sinnrikt system för att få god service på ålderdomshemmet en löpande donation som fortgår endast så länge hon är vid liv. Novellen I augusti skildrar en annan sensommar än den mjuka, silkeslena som beskrivs i Muminböckerna här är man närmare Höstvisans melankoli, eller till och med skräck inför döden. Novellens två äldre systrar har svårt… Read More

Straight, tight and clean with no wear or markings in bright, pictorial card covers, no dustjacket as issued. The pieces in this collection, written between 1956 and 1961 and including short fiction, a radio play, and a stunning early novel, offer startling insights into Cohens imagination and creative process. Cohen explores themes that would permeate his later work, from shame and unworthiness to sexual desire in all its sacred and profane dimensions to longing, whether for love, family, freedom, or transcendence.
