9781934609439: Shame

Monika and Maj-Britt could not be more different. Monika lives with a man who adores her; Maj-Britt can barely manage to write her former husband?s name. Monika, the chief surgeon at a regional hospital, has an overwhelming roster of family and professional obligations; Maj-Britt is a recluse, all but imprisoned by her own obesity. But they do have one thing in common: Both are tormented by memories that only the most excruciating vigilance can keep suppressed. And when chance brings the two women together, those memories can no longer stay contained.

About the Author:

Karin Alvtegen was born in Jonkoping, Sweden, in 1965 and had a varied career, including work in set design for film and stage, before she started to write.

She is the great-neice of Astrid Lindgren (author of the Pippi Longstocking stories), and lives in Stockholm.
