I will try with another approach, in the sommarprogrammet. I'm trying to tell you in reverse, from the day that she dies the day she was born.
meet at Patrik Lundberg in a study in Stockholm a few days before the end of his sommarprat. I am looking for nomineringsdiplomet for the Great prize for journalism. Behind the the the the the the accolade not the least, his article in the Swedish newspaper Expressen kultursida of his mother, Bridget Lundberg . For her hard work in order to get the finances, about stress and sick leave, the following, mental illness, and death. A picture of Sweden.
"the People from the different samhällskikt, and with a variety of opinions, I thought about the article," he said. There may have been a gap in the history of Sweden. Many people are familiar with is the family of a woman from the working class, who have been burned out, and who do not have a voice in the public sphere.
People are trying to clean it. Relativize
I have no diploma in the elevated position, but they did have a copy of the Bodil Malmstens , the last book of poetry. One of Patrick's four-the literary models over the years.
The is the
Marguerite Duras , Jimmie ã ... kesson Karolina Ramqvist .
the Interesting bunch, I think, we have with us. Now that the item has been the book ”the Fjärilsvägen”, which will be released in the next few days. I should point out immediately that, in the end, it seems to the author the object of criticism. There is a fear that people are going to think that his mother should have been the other choice is: don't buy the car, do not let his daughter become the co-owner for a horse, don't borrow for christmas, and she's certainly not the real working class, as she was working part-time in the evenings, and in addition, she drank increasingly more in the last couple of years. I want to know why he is in a defensive position like this, and this is, of course, is an obvious fattigdomsberättelse?

" Through my entire childhood and in my professional life, I can see how people are trying to clean it. Relativize. If someone is being interviewed in the press, testify to his poverty, and at the same time, and the smoke in the story, then it will be hundreds and hundreds of characters and writing on the internet about the fact that smoking costs a lot. And in Africa, indeed the people in the tents. This is a way to clean up these people.
I'm assuming that she's supposed to be the resting place of Fonus
During the writing, he got a clearer picture of his mother, who saved everything from the konfirmationsbevis for proof of employment. Her father was a foster child, and her mother went to the school, but they both got better, and Bridget, were born over the years.
" my Mother was a part of the ordningsamma of the working class. A good student of the folkhemsbygget. After eight years at the elementary school she attended a training on the job for a flooring company. Then, she became an administrative officer in a government department. She was part of the clubs insured through Folksam, joined in the ACTIVITIES, was all of the Credit, and I bought the kombilotter. I guess she's supposed to be the resting place of Fonus.Patrik Lundberg (left) with her sister and her mother.Photo by: < / b> Private
However, this turned out to be a fragile construction. A nedåtresa were the first financially totally wrong, and then, with much work, time off work, increased physical and mental ill-health, and at the end of a drinking problem. Birgitta Lundberg is the event of the death, at the age of 67 years.
The social-democratic folkhemsdrömmen assume that it is the two of you. That's what happened, "he says, referring to the parents' abrupt divorce.
her Mother was, apparently, not ”all”, and she did not
he is ten years old when he comes home from school, and mom announces that my dad has been living a double life and says, ”it is you, who is he in the house.” From that moment on, as well as in the book, förfrämligas the ”father” to the ” " Lars-Gunnar . Lars-Gunnar will be someone who comes by with an envelope of kid's birthday parties.Patrick's mother Bridget, He is.Photo by: < / b> in Private.
the Separation is not the whole story. Two major turning-points down in Bridget's life, which coincides with the two major financial crises. First, the the the the the the. In a part-time job, she suffered the waiting period and the more expensive the food is. When Patrick and his sister since leaving home, she breaks up out of the exhaustion and stress of the job, and then there will be a new crisis, with the unemployment rate. The gap is widening. < / p>
Göran Persson , went to the polls to ”All in”. However, the mother apparently was not one of ”all,” and she did not. A few years later, spoke of the christian democrats.
Göran Hägglund on the ”real people” – which, she heard, apparently, does not work either. Where heard, she was at home.
For the first, he was pretty nice
Which brings us to his first writing role model Jimmie ã ... kesson. As a young man Akesson praoade as a teacher in Lundberg's class at the middle school.
" at first, he was really nice during those few weeks. But then, he wrote a great article in the school newspaper about her time with us. Funny, but serious. It was the first time that I read something that talked about my life. It made me start to dream of myself writing in the school newspaper.
Åkesson, who brought the skrivardrömmen was already a Sverigedemokrat. A little to the periphery of the party. I am asking you what in the who where in SD are at the moment.
" They were Sverigedemokrater the time – even Today – they were a part of the white power movement. Although, of course, you can't pull it all together. They listened to white supremacist music, which, of course, is not illegal in any way, and they went around and put sticky notes with messages like ”who was the Last swede to take the flag with them” and to ”Stop the invasion”. I don't know how much To know what was going on in the inside of the mothership in the game, but it's obvious a lot of the time, which could be seen as a neo-nazi.
this is how my generation and the younger ones, just as in the dark.
For his part, left his political opinions to one side as he dedicated himself to journalism. Both in the book and here for the interview returns, He is to report to statistics SWEDEN, which is evidence that life expectancy for women is going to go down. And this is true, then women who were born in the 90's.
" my föräldrageneration there is nothing to do here, but this is the way it is for my generation and the younger ones, just as in the dark.

as the conversation goes on about the different aspects of his mother's life. From Sweden by the society, and the könsmaktsordning of grupprunkande homophobes in the school, to drink, and not least the healthcare sector. All of the pieces come together in the image of a mother who, in principle, to be able to afford to live the life of their child.
I had delusions of grandeur as a child
" really, It's just in the middle of the day, it is not, of course, to fight for their children to have it better than you.
I wonder if he sees himself as needy as a child. He, with a smile.
" I had delusions of grandeur as a kid. I thought I was going to be able to become the prime minister. Then, I wanted to be a writer. And no-one in Today, " said the ever-to me, that this could not be done.
