An essential component of what begins to look like an extended work of major importance.""-Kirkus Reviews. Moving on from the early twentieth century until the inter-war years, The Spring follows the development of the characters and the community familiar to readers from Witches' Rings (available from Dufour). With a narrative of great subtlety and compelling power, it focuses on the lives of three women, Tora, Frida, and Ingrid, and highlights what is denied and invisible with the instinct that detects what is missing in a society. It presents a history of a place not only through women but through women many of whom would not even make the town's records. Ekman has earned Sweden's highest literary awards, including the Selma Lagerlof Prize, the August Prize, and The Pilot Prize.

Book Description Norvik Press, United Kingdom, 2008. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 189 x 141 mm. Language: English Brand New Book. Kerstin Ekman s novel Blackwater took the world by storm in 1993 and has now been translated into over twenty-five languages. But her reputation as one of Sweden s best-known and most successful authors rests just as securely upon the series of four novels she wrote between 1974 and 1983, which are based on the author s childhood home town of Katrineholm some forty miles southwest of Stockholm. The first of these, Witches Rings, which portrays the final years of the nineteenth century in a small urban community on the cusp of industrialisation, was published by Norvik in 1997. The Spring, which focuses on the lives of three women, Tora, Frida and Ingrid, moves the story on from the early twentieth century to the interwar years. According to Ekman herself, two major socio-psychological studies carried out in Katrineholm indicate that this was a community with which its inhabitants were content.I have devoted eleven years of my life to maintaining the exact opposite. This is accomplished in a narrative of great subtlety and compelling power: once again Kerstin Ekman recreates the past, with an authenticity that resonates urgently in the present.
