Sister and Brother
A Family Story

Paperback | Available April 18
ISBN 978-1-944838-20-1
$34.95 $27.96 | 20% off

This literary biography traces the lives of two cultural figures in Swedish history, a sister and her deaf brother, and emphasizes their shared struggles.

Praise for the Swedish Edition
“This is a book that contains so much that is terribly exciting, from that time and now: Sweden and Europe, speech and silence, opera and painting, gender and class, standards and deviation, virtue, lust, and dishonor. And there is more in this winding, engaging family chronicle...along with occasional epiphanies, presented in simple, precise but sometimes lyrical and striking language.”

—Nina Lekander Expressen
