"”The fear of the future characterises our time”"

"In Amanda's new novel combines familjetrauma with the climate crisis"

"This is a kulturartikel which is a part of Aftonbladet's opinionsjournalistik."

"climate change, the destruction and familjetrauma. The heavy subjects lining up in Amanda's new novel. "

"the Origin was the more prosaic: To write a thick book."

"It was after the last novel, which the feeling came. She wanted to write a book with lots of leaves. "

"But in a book that is thick does it need to happen a lot, and Amanda Svensson has never been good at intrigue. Though she herself may say. "

"to get together the more than five hundred pages, she has now leaned towards an unexpected direction."

"– I grew up on såpoperans heyday in the 1990s. The Tv series Different worlds shaped my view of what a great and massive history shall be, a world where everything is possible and where people return from the dead. "

"A system so magnificent that it dazzles named new book. In the centre stands the adults, the triplets, Sebastian, Clara and Matilda. They live in different parts of the world but is at the same time interconnected and särslitna of the past."

" I have always thought that syskonrelationer been one of the most interesting of a family. Syskonrelationen is not self-chosen, yet still free. At the same time, there is a clear division of roles. I remember how I myself as small compared to me and my siblings with other siblings I knew."

"Krackelerande families."

"She also remember the fascination of twins, both their own and the outside world. The notion that there is a special bond between them. By writing about the triplets, she takes the lure of one more step."

"– There is something magical about the idea that there is another person who almost is one himself."

"In the book, there are also other family groups. Krackelerande such. One of Amanda Svensson's ambitions has been to show what happens when a family falls apart. When the world is big and awkward looking man security. The family is the original security system, " she says. "

" the Family is the carrier of our need for something eternal."

"Waiting at the end of the world"

"Also on a further plan fall the world together. A system so magnificent that it dazzles characterized by the effects of climate change on the planet and the emotional effects it has on us humans. "

"Parts of the story takes place on the mythical easter Island, where a group of people searched in anticipation of the end of the world."

"– It wasn't that I thought, ”now I'm going to write about ecological collapse”. The subject has taken place after the hand, and also as to the whole issue grown media in the meantime I have written."

"When it comes to klimatkänslor is it that there are only two modes," says Amanda Smith. In the literature dominates the doomsday scenarios, and the apocalypse. In policy dominates the peppigheten; only we pull together and sort so do we solve this. "

"Both modes are moves emotionally, she says. "

"– None of them can accommodate the sadness that climate change raises. We already know that the man caused a lot of damage, even if we succeed in slowing down the process will nature be changed in a major way. It is a huge sorgeprocess that humanity faces. "

"In the novel, she describes the people who gathered on easter Island. They are almost all scared of something. For loss, for death, for that which is to come. "

"– the need to control and fear of the future characterises our time."

"Today's successful political forces gets all its energy from the idea of the past," notes Amanda Svensson. Not least in England, where she lives with the family since a few years back. After a year in London, they have now settled down in rural Cornwall."

"throughout the Brexit campaign, it was clear how both the fear and need for control was the impetus. "

"– A slogan was expressly ”Take back control”. As o migration can be stopped, we just isolate ourselves in our island, approximately. "

"Man has always been drawn to the idea of the last time. Why? "

"– because we always had a notion that it was better in the past and, therefore, that we are equipped with a dödsdrift. In order to be able to feel that life is valuable, needed a threat and an end. It applies to both communities and smaller systems."

"Feeling of rebirth"

"In the new novel's last lines writes Amanda Svensson: ”Everything goes in, but everything is a wonder”. Despite the climate crisis, and familjekollaps she wanted to finish the story in a sense of rebirth."

"– So I am thinking about the future when I feel ångestfull. The earth will not look as we are accustomed to, it may not even be people. But the earth itself will remain. There will always be something new."
