NARRATOR'S FESTIVAL, AUTHORS 'MEETING: SVANTE BÄCKSTRÖM

BURTRÄSK, Skellefteå

THE PERFORMANCE IS IN SWEDISH. Svante Bäckström talks about his debut book How the country rises.

As a child growing up in Burträsk, Svante Bäckström heard the story of the homeowner Anders Andersson in Valsfäboda. We meet a man who resignedly waged an anti-struggle against the environment and its prevailing norms with the Västerbotten agricultural community as a fund.

In parallel with Anders Andersson's natural romantic inner conflict, Bäckström paints a society in change. The state had decided that Västerbotten would be populated, without taking into account those who already lived there and the untouched nature. How the country rises is a dreamy story about a fateful life fate and about living out of step with the times.
