Karolina Ramqvist - placeholder book cover


Karolina Ramqvist is one of the most influential writers and feminists of her generation in Sweden. She has written five novels and is widely celebrated for her powerful explorations of contemporary issues such as sexuality, commercialisation, isolation and belonging. In 2015, Karolina was awarded the prestigious P.O. Enquist Literary Prize for The White City (Den vita staden), and for her ‘unique and strong position in Swedish literature’. Her latest book, It’s the Night, is a personal essay about the different roles of the writer. She is currently working on an essayistic novel entitled Bear Woman about a writer whose life becomes intertwined with the forgotten fate of a 16th century noblewoman, Marguerite de La Rocque, who survived harrowing years alone on a deserted island.
