From the commonplace charm of the title story, to the searing futuristic satire of The Children's Campaign, to the disquieting fantasy of The Lift That Went Down to Hell, we see that Lagerkvist admits no settled boundaries between fact and fable. In this he is a poet for whom fantasy permeates the actual and reality can take on the dimensions of the fabulous. Life is, to him, a system of dark paradoxes; but there is also the good -- a quiet, everyday radiance that mankind always had difficulty noticing and setting a value on.Hide synopsis
