German autumn by Stig Dagerman ( )
10 editions published between 1988 and 2011 in English and held by 341 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 ( )
9 editions published between 1991 and 2012 in English and held by 256 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

"On enterre une femme à deux heures ... C'est par ces mots que comme L'Enfant brûlé, le chef-d'oeuvre de Stig Dagerman, qui date de 1948. En effet, la mère est morte, laissant un mari et un fils de vingt ans. Qui était-elle en dehors de cette rumeur quotidienne dont elle remplissait la maison? Trop tard pour le savoir. Désormais, son absence va prendre un poids que n'avait pas sa présence, suscitant entre père et fils d'étranges rapports faits de questions tacites, de suspicion mutuelle, de jalousie et de haine, mais aussi d'amour. Lire Dagerman - ce Rimbaud du Nord qui mit fin à ses jours en 1954, alors qu'il n'avait que trente et un an et que, depuis longtemps, il se taisait - c'est lire un écrivain majeur, l'un de ces auteurs sont la voix a la vertu de raccourcir à la seconde des distances entre lecteur et auteur, instaurant entre eux les liens de complicité les plus étroits, commandant un irrésistible mouvement de sympathie. Ardent et précis à la fois, l'écrivain jette ses filets au plus profond de nous-mêmes, ramenant à la surface nos secrets les plus troubles et les moins avouables. Tandis que, sur fond de rues enneigées, d'archipels lisses et de soleils froids, des personnages ravagés de passion se dressent, à jamais inoubliables, comme dans un film qui serait le plus beau film d'Ingmar Bergman, ce compatriote de Dagerman, " l'Enfant brûlé "
