‘Who decides what is important and what is superfluous?
All I know is that the more details I give you the more it seems like I’m leaving out’
Everything I Don’t Remember is the fourth novel by Swedish author Jonas Hassen Khemiri. In 2015, it was awarded Swedan’s August Prize, one of the most celebrated and prestigious literary Prizes in Sweden. Named after the famous Swedish author August Strindberg, the award was established with the hope of increasing public interest in Swedish contemporary literature
Everything I Don’t Remember is translated from Swedish by Rachel William-Broyles and published in English very recently. I received my copy from Sophie Orme, editorial director of Scribner, in return for my honest review.
