A Spoon River Anthology in Sweden. Not poetry, but tales.
A beautiful ode to the spoken word.
Every single story here is the ring of a wool chain made, told by the narrator, a tailor who has lost love finding a kind of personal faith.
And he can't stop moving his feet, his hands and his mouth between human afflictions, fears, idiosyncrasies and superstitions in a timeless scenario made by common people.
