"Barbro Westling on Viveca Lärns autobiography ”Sladdisen”"
"It is Gothenburg and early 50s. Vivecas dad is flying reporter and cartoonist on the Goteborgs Handels - och Sjöfartstidning, the mother is artist and read novels. Dad Hubbe and mother Catherine is sladdisar, just as Viveca, and in addition the bohemians as always have fun and inspire each other. Together with Vivecas big sister Anita family lives in the gulaste flerfamiljshuset on Delsjövägen in Gothenburg, sweden. Where life is a celebration and popular walks, parties, learning, and pranks succeed each other."
"It's a bit happy-go-lucky over Viveca Lärns depiction of his childhood. As if there were not some really boring must-haves. Vivecas uncle Ferdinand, ”the world's funniest human being” and editor-in-chief on the GT, devouring a bowl of curds or two after work, and he also want the fastest possible out with segelekan or the bike. Adults and children has much to do with each other, more serious problems are conspicuous by their absence."
"the Style in the book is unconcerned and casual, recollections, and insights come and go at will. It fit no psychological reflections, and it is set only sparingly in relation to something else. It is as if the author kept the child's eye for curious details, essentials, and hilarious adults and this look may be here an extraordinarily happy childhood performing. "
"Lärns minnesgodhet is also exceptional. How can she remember so much from so long ago, that mom would prefer wife Adamssons chokladcigaretter in front of the press office, for their ”deeper aroma”, the first purchase of nylon stockings in the sisters lindberg's kortvaruaffär (it was a cast able to the customer to submit the sock for uppmaskning, the socks from Nivella cost still the whole four and fifty!)."
"just As uncontrollably laughing as they ate themselves, after a trip abroad simply forgot to download Viveca on barnpensionatet where she housed towards the payment,"
"You have to realize the equal value of all people and be happy, it has Viveca learned. ”Dad is happy, it is I also, it is wonderful.” Herself she becomes the king at the school's fun hour, never want to stop sneaking up on people or throw out a aptly replicas. Others ' birthday party with games and cake making her etc. When she has a party stands glassmaränger delivered from Bräutigams on the ice out on the balcony. But when Viveca yearn to sit on a checkered blanket on the grass with a picnic, keep the parents that laugh themselves to death for her småborgerlighet. As uncontrollably laughing as they ate themselves, after a trip abroad simply forgot to download Viveca on barnpensionatet where she housed towards the payment. "
"I love my parents, but it is not a verb we use in our family. Man does not show emotions and not talking about them. If you have not seen in a long time, to take in hand when you meet. There are many rules, which is marked into my brain.” But there are also many freedoms that sladdisen are allowed to take. She may run away from home and don't need to admit that she accidentally fired up the socks on the lights when she made it cosy at home."
"Lärn write, jointly and severally, by the time of his childhood, and that children cherish her parents' ideals. Viveca read their own morning and evening prayers, and she is making the effort always, completely under the mild form of schartaunism in the family. She works, learns and signs diligently."
"Around her are also all encouraging adults who support and encourage her. Already at the age of twelve translates Viveca series and textar balloons for Göteborgstidningen and earn seventy-five dollars a month! Then she gets physical and is hanging on the Götaplatsen and the four years on the flickläroverket will be her best. She loves jazz and dixie, is afraid of boys, and at the same time interested. Constantly inquisitive, humorous, she strives on."
"the way it goes when Viveca Lärn in our celebrating seventy-five years and almost an equal number of issued and beloved books. In the ”Sladdisen”, the reader may meet the whole of the imaginative and safe upbringing, the author sprung from. The throng of willfulness and the many firm (sometimes ridiculous) ideas about how things should be done, what today would be called for to write someone on the nose. Mother odds with the mayor about how the books should be in the bookshelf, pushed as far as it will go or stretched in a straight line. Fathers in a time before leisure clothes cut the grass in their completed costumes."
"The anecdotal spice up the book's four hundred pages but the author really want to explain how this family works, and there are both sincerity and pride in the narrative. And so can accommodate the book a great love for the city of Gothenburg and the summers in the bohusländska the archipelago."
