A woman doing behavioral experiments on a population unfamiliar with showing emotions to strangers. Parents suppressing all common sense in order to grasp what their new world expects of their child. A Russian invasion shaking the grounds of naïvely unprepared citizens forced to find new values.
Only in Sweden-a country so quiet it will drive you mad!
In this collection of short stories, three exiled writers
from Iran living in Sweden examine the oddities of their
new society. Who are these Swedish people surrounding them? How are they to be understood? Is it even worth the effort? What makes people Swedish, anyway?
The authors presented in this collection-Naeimeh
Doostdar (b. 1977), Azita Ghahreman (b. 1962) and Nasrin Madani (b. 1979)-are representatives of contemporary Swedish literature who are writing in Farsi.
