Monika Fagerholm

Finnish-Swedish Monika Fagerholm (b. 1961) is regarded as one of Scandinavia’s finest literary authors. Her highly musical and literary prose, rich with local mannerisms, literary allusions and repetitions in a fugue style, in combination with her deep love and understanding of popular music as a mythical foundation in the lives of teenagers, makes her an outstanding artist and one of the truly original interpreters and chroniclers of our common cultural heritage of the past forty years.
