Swedish Reading Club: Everything I Don’t Remember (Allt jag inte minns) by Jonas Hassen Khemiri
Winner of the August Prize, Sweden’s most prestigious literary honor, Everything I Don’t Remember is “compelling… In this painful novel about youthful optimism gone hopelessly wrong, Khemiri dramatizes such immigration-related issues as failures in elder care, unemployment and dead-end jobs, drug abuse, and racial prejudice.” (Publishers Weekly, starred review)
You can buy the book online at Schuler’s, or at a discount in the store.
