German autumn by Stig Dagerman( Book )

110 editions published between 1947 and 2014 in 12 languages and held by 482 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In late 1946, Stig Dagerman was assigned by the Swedish newspaper Expressen to report on life in Germany immediately after the fall of the Third Reich. First published in Sweden in 1947, German Autumn, a collection of the articles written for that assignment, was unlike any other reporting at the time. While most Allied and foreign journalists spun their writing on the widely held belief that the German people deserved their fate, Dagerman disagreed and reported on the humanness of the men and women ruined by the war-their guilt and suffering. Dagerman was already a prominent writer in Sweden
Island of the doomed by Stig Dagerman( Book )

78 editions published between 1946 and 2016 in 11 languages and held by 325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the summer of 1946, while secluded in August Strindberg's small cabin in the Stockholm archipelago, Stig Dagerman wrote Island of the Doomed . This novel was unlike any other yet seen in Sweden and would establish him as the country's brightest literary star. To this day it is a singular work of fiction-a haunting tale that oscillates around seven castaways as they await their inevitable death on a desert island populated by blind gulls and hordes of iguanas. At the center of the island is a poisonous lagoon, where a strange fish swims in circles and devours anything in its path. As we are

Dagsedlar by Stig Dagerman( Book )

44 editions published between 1954 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Stig Dagerman publicerade omkring 1350 dagsverser. De första verserna skrev han på hösten 1943 under signaturen Qroll. Den sista lämnade han in på tidningen Arbetarens redaktion dagen före självmordet 1954. Bengt Holmqvist skrev om Dagermans Dagsedlar i Stockholms-Tidningen: "Indignationen var hela tiden lika stark, medkänslan lika levande, ironin lika frän och lika fullständigt fri från cynism. Men först nu när man läser ett representativt urval av dagsedlarna i följd, märker man den stigande linjen i denna produktion: hur kvickheten blir allt rörligare, hur spändheten förvandlas till lätthet, hur skärpan alltmer tvångslöst förenar sig med en briljant fantasilek.

Sleet : selected stories by Stig Dagerman( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a superb collection of stories by Stig Dagerman, one of the most talented writers of Sweden's post-war generation. Stig Dagerman (1923-1954) is regarded as the most talented young writer of the Swedish post-war generation. By the 1940s, his fiction, plays, and journalism had catapulted him to the forefront of Swedish letters, with critics comparing him to William Faulkner, Franz Kafka, and Albert Camus. His suicide at the age of thirty-one was a national tragedy. This selection, containing a number of new translations of Dagerman's stories never before published in English, is unified by the theme of the loss of innocence. Often narrated from a child's perspective, the stories give voice to childhood's tender state of receptiveness and joy tinged with longing and loneliness. The title story, To Kill A Child , is the most famous of Dagerman's short stories and among the most anthologized and oft-read stories in Sweden
