NEW AUTHOR: Jonas Eika

Ahlander Agency proudly welcomes Jonas Eika.

Jonas Eika took the literary world by storm in 2019 when he was awarded the Nordic Council Literature Prize for his collection After the Sun, and his divisive acceptance speech went viral.

Eika is a young writer in utter command of his craft who grabs hold of the reader with tender fury. His is a world that both expands and contracts; each story in this transgressive collection opens a door, a series of entrances beckoning to new realities.

 

Yesterday at tabloid newspaper Expressen‘s yearly culture celebration, Matilda Gustavsson was awarded the Björn Nilsson Award for Excellent Culture Journalism for her book The Club. The jury’s motivation reads as follows:

“She lit up a world rife with dark corners. A reporter with tender stylistic sensibility and a formidable ability to build trust. The Club that was blown to bits and the greatest cultural exposé of our time – those are her trailblazing achievements.”
