The Way We Played Highlighted by Göteborgs-Posten
Ninni Schulman’s latest novel, The Way We Played, has received a rave review from daily newspaper Göteborgs-Posten:
“Schulman is a skilled storyteller who through her language gives every scene a strong presence. Scents of Swedish summer and a time gone by rise from the pages of the book while the plot thickens. I am the same age as the author and there are many well-placed details that are pure madeleine cakes of childhood’s eternal summer holidays, when telephones were attached to the wall by a cord and the bicycle was the way to freedom. In flashbacks, we follow Mattias and his friends in the weeks leading up to his disappearance, and here Schulman shows a particular sensitivity to the vulnerable relationships that come with this age. After a dramatic ending, there is no doubt that a sequel awaits – which we are thankful for.”
The Way We Played was published by Bazar on January 10th.
