Descrizione prodotto


'In crisp, limpid sentences (deftly translated into English by Sarah Death), Lindgren narrates all the news of the war as it arrives in her peaceful bit of Stockholm... oddly cheering' -- Guardian

'Lindgren doesn't experience the same privations as her European neighbours, of course; nevertheless the conflict is hugely formative for her, both psychologically and morally... Her appreciation of the individual cost of such large-scale suffering is striking' -- Observer

'Something out of the ordinary' -- Phillip Pullman, New York Times

'The diaries make for crisp, painful and perspective-refreshing reading' -- Spectator

'Lindgren displays immense compassion for others, on both sides... The diaries often become deeply contemplative' -- Financial Times

'Lindgren's diaries show a compassionate and curious woman trying to fathom the horrors of war through her writing, and leaving behind a wonderful insight into life during a global conflict' -- The National

'Sensitive, wide-ranging and offers a rare Scandinavian perspective on the catastrophe of the Nazi war' -- Wall Street Journal

'It offers a remarkable portrait of domestic life in a country maintaining a fragile peace while war raged all around' -- New Statesman

'A trove of a book, crammed with gem-like observations and truths' -- The National Magazine

'"Laden with sadness and dismay,"' the diaries show everything from Lindgren's horror at the deportation of 1,000 Norwegian Jews to Poland - "it is diabolical!" - to her personal heartbreak after a marriage crisis' -- Guardian

'The creator of Pippi Longstocking reveals her very personal take on WWII' -- Gransnet

'This is a fascinating, engrossing, and wholly unique account of a young writer's attempts to make sense of World War II, from the local concerns of food rationing and the well-being of her children to the larger theatre of war unfolding in Europe, Africa, and Asia' -- Morten Høi Jensen

'The newly published 1939-1945 diaries of the globally acclaimed children's book author offer fresh insights into war-time Sweden and into the life of the not-yet-famous Astrid Lindgren' -- Radio Sweden

'A fascinating time-machine. "Then" becomes "now"' -- Per Svensson, Sydsvenska Dagbladed

'She compassionately, carefully and meticulously documents the horror which was spreading across Europe... these diaries... offer a unique insight into everyday life in Sweden in the shadow of war, and into Lindgren's thoughts on Nazi Germany' -- Zeit

'The war diaries are marked by fear, astonishment and empathy... This is a breathtaking read ' --Die Welt

'An educational and engaging read' -- Bookbag

'Fascinating reading about a young woman's daily life in extraordinary circumstances' -- The Writes of Women

'A wonderful and, in places, heart-rending account of World War II, from a perspective not usually prioritised in historical retellings' --Elle Thinks

'Lindgren emerges as a morally courageous critic of violence and war' --Total Politics


Astrid Lindgren (1907-2002) is the third most translated writer for children (after Hans Christian Andersen and the Brothers Grimm), and her books have sold more than 144 million copies worldwide. She became famous in her country almost overnight, with the publication of the first Pippi Longstocking books in 1945, and was awarded numerous honours, including the Hans Christian Andersen medal (twice) and the Gold Medal of the Swedish Academy in 1971.
