The publisher, Åsa Lindström says about the novel:“I was, as were a number of my colleagues who also read the novel, completely floored by the concentrated language, the unsentimental and compelling expression and the powerful love that shines through this portrayal of life as the mother of an autistic child. This novel does not only have fantastic literary qualities, but is also an important testimony of what life looks like for children with autism and their next of kin.”
