About the Author

Fredrik Sjoberg collects hoverflies on the island of Runmar , in the archipelago east of Stockholm. He is also a literary critic, translator, cultural columnist and the author of several books, including The Fly Trap and The Raisin King, which form a trilogy with The Art of Flight.


Digressive, discursive and delightful. -- Michael Kerr * Telegraph *

A joy . . . Fredrik Sjoeberg's best-selling memoir The Fly Trap marked him as a maestro of the episodic. Here, he
completes a trilogy.

* Nature *
By his own admission Sjoeberg has a "butterfly mind"; the effect of his narrative excursions amounts to a sort of Sebald-lite, albeit without the fictional element. What insures this approach against triviality is the author's patient alertness to pattern, to telling correspondence. -- Nat Segnit * Times Literary Supplement *

Delightful, at once informative and often humorously digressive . . . a humane man of wide-ranging curiosity, Sjoeberg writes with infectious passion.

* Independent *
