About this product
- DescriptionFirst published in Swedish in 1940, this novel envisioned a future of drab terror. Seen through the eyes of idealistic scientist Leo Kall, it depicts a totalitarian world state. Its central idea grew from the rumours of truth drugs that ensured the subservience of every citizen to the state.
- Author BiographyKarin Boye (1900-1941) was a Swedish poet and novelist whose suicide in 1941 amid the shambles of a war-racked Europe reflects the fate of a whole generation of writers. Her first novel, Astarte, appeared in 1931.
