Några av berättelserna äro visserligen bagateller, men Hjalmar Söderberg förmår ge även småsaker en skarp och sirlig kontur, en fin udd (Tuschritningen, En kopp te, Vox populi).

Hjalmar Emil Fredrik Söderberg was a Swedish novelist, playwright, poet and journalist. His works often deal with melancholy and lovelorn characters, and offer a rich portrayal of contemporary Stockholm through the eyes of the flaneur. Söderberg is greatly appreciated in his native country, and is sometimes considered to be the equal of August Strindberg, Sweden's national author.
