'In the opening chapter, with its famous bird's-eye view of Stockholm, Strindberg's vivid prose sparkles with energy and invention. The hero of the novel, the young and idealistic Arvid Falk, resigns from the Civil Service in disgust at the corruption he sees everywhere in the Establishment. He wants to become a writer and joins a group of bohemian artists, but struggles to free himself from his own prim and puritan inclinations. [...] As so often in Strindberg, it is the tension between irreconcilable opposites that provides the narrative energy.' Ulf Dantanus, 1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die '...a scathing attack on every aspect of modern life.' Rosalind Porter, '1000 Novels Everyone Must Read', The Guardian --The Guardian
'[An] arresting work.' --Rain Taxi
