Århundradets kärlekssaga – the Love Story of the Century is a series of separate, but linked autobiographical prose poems. The book is a merciless account of the author’s marriage to an alcoholic, who also was a prominent writer and artist. The poems describe a variety of feelings: love, hate, passion, quilt, hope and despair. Feminist views are combined with personal reflections both as a wife and as a mother. A selection of fifteen prose poems in the book is digitized and saved in this website (FRAGEN _ Frames on Gender). The selection is made by the author herself. The cover art is made by Henrik Tikkanen and lay out by Carl Henning.
