Hash : a novel by Torgny Lindgren( Book )
11 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 475 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The main ingredients in the recipes for Swedish hash, a dish known among the peasants of remote northern villages for its delectability and restorative powers differ widely. The meats, offal, and grain that go into its preparation - an elaborate process of boiling, pickling, steaming and stewing - can range from the obscure to the dangerous and the results can be alternately emetic and sublime. The search for the most delicious dish of hash - the ultimate hash - forms the backbone of the blackly comic, marvelously innovative new novel from one of Sweden's most esteemed and best-selling authors." "In a small town where an epidemic of tuberculosis rages, two very different men arrive to a scene of suffering accepted by the inhabitants not with stoicism or as a test of fate, but almost with glee. Robert Maser is a traveling garment salesman whose accent and demeanor betray the fact that he is actually the fugitive Martin Bormann, the Nazi leader rumored to have slipped past Red Army lines during the fall of Berlin. He engages the local schoolteacher, Lars, on the bizarre quest to find the world's best hash, and together they wander the Swedish countryside, inviting themselves into peasant homes to sample a variety of humble family recipes. As their search becomes more impassioned, it becomes clear that their goal is much more than a culinary marvel, and that what they've really been seeking is the force of life that must present itself even in the darkest of times." "Their adventures are narrated in a faux-naif style by a 107-year-old newspaper reporter who was witness to the events as they occurred in 1947, and has waited for the right time to confront his own relationship to life and death, happiness and suffering, and the power of art to express life's ambiguities."--BOOK JACKET
Sweetness by Torgny Lindgren( Book )
14 editions published between 1996 and 2002 in 6 languages and held by 266 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The woman had come from a city in the south to lecture in a small village amid the snowbound forests of northern Sweden. She was a writer. After the lecture in the village hall an old man who had been sleeping at the back introduced himself, as she was to be his guest for the night. So it was that she moved in with Hadar, a man who lived on his own and was in the last stages of cancer. Not another house in sight, save for one just a field away; there lived Hadar's brother Olof, also on his own, and dying of heart disease. Neither brother would consent to die, the woman discovered, for that would give the satisfaction of outliving him."--Back cover
