One morning you’ll wake up

Back to Conny Palmkvist

In nine short stories you meet people who all face life changing events. The surroundings seem to slip around them as they grow up and try to grasp the nuisance of their fate.

Conny Palmkvist chores the portrait of them and their stories with his typically sparse style. It is a journey through a rugged landscape of love, guilt, forgiveness and exclusion. In the collection is the nationally noted short story Lowland.

“Umeå Novell Prize goes to the writer Conny Palmkvist, who, with an exemplary consequence, local touches and personal language senses a group of young boys handy meeting with the adult world.”
