En av böckerna jag läst under veckan är Swallowed by the cold av Jensen Beach
Jag har länkat titeln till Adlibris då jag inte hittade boken hos förlaget.
Boken består av episoder, noveller eller vad man ska kalla dem, de är hoplänkade så att de handlar om samma grupp av människor i samma miljö, vintern i Stockholm. Men varje episod är sin egen och man knyter inte an till varandra.
Min smakbit kommer från sid.147 novellen heter “The apartment”
“She decided to walk home. Systembolaget had a location near Jonas`s office oand she wanted to buy a bottle of wine. It embarrassed her to buy wine more than twice a week from the same Systembolaget and she´d been to the location closer to her apartment only the day before. Lately, she´d been interested in South African wines. She picked two bottles of a cabernet that, according to a sign fastened to the shelf in the store, had ranked very highly in a blind taste test. She paid for the wine, and, as she left the store, she looked up and down the street to see if there was anyone who might recognize her. The she stuffed the bottles into her purse, concealing what wouldn´t fit all the way in with her scarf, and walked the rest of the way home.
