Euphoria Book of the Day in The Guardian

Elin Cullhed’s critically acclaimed novel Euphoria has been highlighted as Book of the Day in the Guardian, where it additionally received a rave review:

Euphoria, a much-garlanded novel by Swedish writer Elin Cullhed, is an account of Plath’s final year, flooded with Plath’s own imagery and written from a perspective deep inside her head. […] Cullhed’s contribution is to grasp the sanity that novelistic description can bring to the marital pyrotechnics, slowing things down and adding a suppleness and dimensionality that Plath and Hughes don’t seem to have been capable of themselves within the marriage. The audacity is necessary: without overpowering confidence of the kind on display here, there would be no point doing this at all. And I think Cullhed succeeds in creating a book for our times. […] Cullhed succeeds in showing the miraculousness of creation.”
