The Umeå region reads

The author Lars Widding

The literary scholar Anders Öhman talks about Lars Widding’s authorship. What was special about it and how did his reputation get affected by being a “celebrity writer”? The focus is primarily on Widding’s Umeå novels.
Anders Öhman has written the afterword for 2013’s edition of Pigan och härligheten (The Maid and the Glory) , and has also written a chapter on Lars Widding in the book Umeå 1314-2014: 100 stories about 700 years. He has previously written about, among other things, the 1800th century novels, popular literature and northern Sweden’s literature. In 2005, he received the Ivar Lo-Johansson Prize for his book about Gustav Hedenvind-Eriksson.

The event is part of the project The Umeå region reads where we read the same book and share reading experiences. This year’s book is Lars Widding’s Pigan och härligheten.

In Swedish.
