Reviews

  • Dagerman wrote with beautiful objectivity. Instead of emotive phrases, he uses a choice of facts, like bricks, to construct an emotion

    Graham Greene
  • Dagerman can evoke such emotion in a single sentence

    Colm Toibin
  • There are some writers (Kafka and Lorca immediately spring to mind) who come to enjoy the status of saint; their lives and deaths constitute statements about existence and its proper priorities. A saint of this type is the Swedish writer Stig Dagerman.

    Times Literary Supplement
  • A writer of uncommon urgency and power

    Siri Hustvedt
