DESCRIPTION

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 Malmo, Sweden--strives to keep the culture and values that others might call "European Trash" intact.

Awarded the Gerard Bonnier Prize in 2010

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

"Ulf Peter Hallberg writes beautifully about both love and trash." --Amelie Bjorck, Goteborgs-Posten
