Det regnar in under tröskeln, blixten har slagit ner i modemet, jag måste kontrollera att autogiroutgifterna inte överskrider summan på kontot för då skickas fordran direkt till den franska motsvarigheten till kronofogden och hamnar man där är det slut på livet i den form jag känner det, det dagliga livet, det lilla fina vanliga livet. Jag måste se till att försäkringarna ...more

jag gillar hur malmsten skriver men stod verkligen inte ut med det välbeställda gnäll den här boken var. förlåt men det att öht ha någonstans att bo är ingen självklarhet för de flesta och den här boken handlar om hur synd det är om protagonisten för att den frivilligt sålt sitt hus och köpt lägenhet istället??? missa mig med det tramset. skiter i hur existentiellt eller metaforiskt en kan läsa det, det är sjukt störigt ändå.

Ledsen, men jag klarade bara en fjärdedel. Finns inget som intresserar mig här, och det är svårt att förstå varför boken blev skriven och utgiven. Trädgård. Grannar. Mer är det inte.

It was not as good as 'Priset på vatten i Finistère'. But it was okay.

“On growing peonies:
The fact that a flower as gentle and delightful as the peony should be so exacting and dictate such harsh terms hits me with the force of a cold shower. It's just like my girlfriends when I was a teenager, it was always the loveliest and most yielding ones who ran everything...[and] According to the English gardening book, peonies are so fussy that you might as well not bother. You'd need to go back generations to discover the composition of the soil, you'd have to go right back to the Big Bang to find out how the elements are distributed in your garden.”
