Usually I’m interested in reading #controversial novels for the sake of historical reasons. #doctorglas caused a #commotion when it first came out at the beginning of the #20thcentury in #swedenAfter reading it, I think this story will still create a stir in people. Forget about the #abortion #infidelity #euthanasia I think the powerful and troubling effects steam from the disturbingly rational and logical ambitions #glas wants to achieve. #soderberg accentuates the emotional roller coaster with the #epistolary style. You are truly inside Doctor Glas’ mind all the time and you can’t help thinking that it all makes sense… #hjalmarsöderberg#hjalmarsoderberg #söderberg #stockholm#swedishliterature #pharoseditions#doktorglas #journal #obsession
