Husmoderns Död - Sara Danius

Danius is the sister of Felicia Feldt, and that is as much as I'm going to say about her family ties.

She is also a member of the Swedish Literary Academy and, it would seem, an skilled literary critic. This is a collection of her articles and essays, published in one of Sweden's major newspapers and then re-edited by herself. In an easy-going and elegant style, she analyses a wide range of authors, from Austen to Freud to Mann to de Beauvoir to Nabokov.
She also looks into glass art, photo and fashion (an excellent piece on the place of fashion in French 19th century novels).

Interesting, educational and well-written!
