"Gustav Borsgård if Nuckan, Haggan and literary girl power"
"This is a kulturartikel which is a part of Aftonbladet's opinionsjournalistik."
"When I read Johanna Peace Nora or brinn Oslo brinn, it strikes me that the best Swedish novels of the past few years have been written by women. I think of Agnes Lidbecks icy women's prison in the Finding itself, the Tone Schunnessons kvalmiga charterliv in Tripprapporter. "
"the Tone of Johanna Peace is, first and foremost, cursed: bröliga danes is just as disturbing as Instagramduktiga russia. The novels are the same, but have in common that they on the new way shows what it can mean to be a woman in the 2010s. How are they succeeding with it?"
"you a book about male autofiktion from 2015, Irreplaceable men, claims Anders Johansson to författarmän in the day actually have less literary freedom than what women have. Karl Ove Knausgård may fight for their literary emancipation, how much he wants to, but remains a slave under the manlighetens standards. How much different Knausgårds romanjag from standardberättelsen if författargeniet? Sure, this time the man on the babyrytmik, but not without wanting to straffknulla the women in the ring.n"
"It sucks, by all accounts, to be an underdog in real life. Women objectified, get poorer working conditions. Literary, however, there is an advantage to be none, namely, that one can become someone. The woman is the other sex, which socially and politically is fördjävligt, but from an artistic point of view, open to ”the other”, the indefinite article, to be able to take shape."
"An example from last year of a female author who strives to make ”any” of ”no” is Malin Lindroth. This may not a name, Nuckan. Nuckan is the subject without a partner and children, not because of a peppigt choice to ”bet on himself”, but not as a monument to failure. Nuckan shall neither idealiseras or ömkas. She does not require much more than anything immensely, namely, to have their existence recognized."
"If Lindroths nucka is peaceful and low-key can the opposite be said of Haggan, recently framskriven of Aase Berg. Haggan is a furious figure, a hacker, a patriarchate hangman. As well as in the Nuckan, here's an invitation: to connect you, the old hag away, for we are many! I have, however, difficult to see the formation of a haggkollektiv as the novel's core. The linger is rather a wracked cry of unrequited love: I was not the one I wanted."
"This is a reading that Haggan would hate, but the point is that the contradiction does not make the novel any worse. On the contrary: without the pain, the sorrow, would be Haggans girl power as it is difficult to imagine that when Annie Lööf paints Margaret Thatcher as a feminist icon. I don't think anyone can or want to be Haggan as she squares implemented. However, there are probably many who are like Haggan who she really is: contradictory, lost, angry, sad, strong, weak ..."
"night writing up this type of ”other” subjects is no small thing. This is what distinguishes fiction from valplanscher, what makes one art and the other to the ideology. Oddly enough, it also seems to be more politics in the last one."
