Bathsheba by Torgny Lindgren( Book )

88 editions published between 1984 and 2011 in 15 languages and held by 658 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Des prix littéraires français attribués en 1986, celui-ci est sans doute le mieux mérité. En effet, ce roman (le second de l'auteur) a obtenu le prix Fémina étranger. Il dépeint la vie à la cour du roi David et son amour pour la "presque effoyablement belle" et trop parfaite Bethsabée enlevée à Urie son époux. Un grand roman biblique sur l'amour, la sensualité, la puissance du Seigneur, la mort et le pouvoir
Hash : a novel by Torgny Lindgren( Book )

46 editions published between 2002 and 2014 in 8 languages and held by 587 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."--Jacket

"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

Hur han än vände och vred på glaset inför sina glupska ögon stod det snett och lutande. Det lutade mycket kraftigt, än hit, än dit. Att stå rakt upp som ett anständigt glas förmådde det inte. Glaset hade helt enkelt rätat på sig. Men eftersom det stod på en stubbe som varit sågad mot alla regler och i strid med alla anvisningar från skogsbolagen hade det blivit rakt upptill, snett nedtill. Med sin överdel hade det siktat mot stjärnorna, med sin bas hade det varit bundet vid jorden och slav under tyngdkraften. Och med ens stod det klart för honom att den döda materien inte är död. Det var i den stunden han blev konstnär. Glaset hade levat sitt liv, det hade insett sin snedhet och sin lutande belägenhet och beslutat sig för det stolta upprättståendet. Utan att riktigt förstå konsekvenserna. Om glaset haft ett namn hade det hetat Klingsor. Han hade själv formulerat sitt mål: att med måleriets kirurgi öppna föremålen och visa deras inre liv. Det är ju vad all konst i grunden syftar till. Och aldrig förmår. Klingsor utvecklades aldrig som konstnär. Han blev inte bättre, han blev inte sämre. Samtidigt var detta hans storhet, genom att aldrig svika sig själv förblev han medelmåttig och grandios, hur djupt man än borrar i den svenska konstens historia finner man alltid nere i de väldigaste djupen Klingsor. Det anstår oss inte att göra Klingsor mindre än han var. Klingsor är en roman om skapandets villkor. Med det gripande porträttet av konstnären Klingsor visar Torgny Lindgren återigen att han tillhör våra allra största berättare. [Publit]
