European Trash: Fourteen Ways to Remember a Father


Winner of the 2010 Gerard Bonnier Prize.

One of the year's most stimulating reading experiences.--Michel Ekman, Svenska Dagbladet

Ulf Peter Hallberg writes beautifully about both love and trash.--Amelie Bj rck, G teborgs-Posten

Combining fact and fiction, photographs and quotes, European Trash is a humorous, moving, and elegiac novel that circles around the image of the author's father who, through his assemblage of objects, art, and wisdom--collected in his flat in Malm , Sweden--strives to keep the culture and values that others might call European Trash intact.

I open the door and walk into my father's empty apartment. Already in the hall I get the feeling that he is still in the kitchen making coffee, quickly turning around to look in my direction. In that unfamiliar silence, visions and memories are released: how he walked toward me with that gleam in his eye, how he pronounced my name, how he inspected me to check my level of fatigue.

Ulf Peter Hallberg is a Swedish writer born in Malm , Sweden, who has lived in Berlin, Germany, since 1983. He is the author of many books, including The Glance of the Fl neur (translated into German and Italian), Grand Tour, Legends & Lies, and European Trash.

Erland Anderson has published several books in translation, including Between Darkness, Darkness: Selected Poems by Rolf Aggestam (with Lars Nordstrom, 1989), and Views from a Tuft of Grass by Harry Martinson (2005).

Ingrid Cassady is from Stockholm, Sweden, and currently lives in California.
