Format: Hardcover
"Stories of Happy People" is one of my very favorite collections of stories; there's absolutely nothing like it that I know of. Lars Gustaffson--a Swedish writer long since transplanted to Texas--is one of the greatest unknown writers alive today.

opaque and illuminating all at once... Dec 5 2007
By Antoine Wilson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
These stories are unique, philosophical, oddly shaped, opaque, and (paradoxically) illuminating. At times, they operate like memory: seemingly capricious at the outset, intensely focussed later on. I don't know of anyone else who writes quite like Gustafsson.

I like this guy Aug. 23 2005
By Gary Lehmann - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I like this guy. He really has a command of intuition, but I feel like he is always in a state of self-doubt. He manages to feel the moment and creates a passing second that lives vividly, but then he philosophizes beyond the moment and wastes the opportunity to be profound. Still, I like this guy. He tells me a lot about the beating heart, the hot blood,the cool calculation, the keen insight, the flat out lie.
Clever, witty, sad. Sept. 7 2013
By Rosemary Lilburne - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Beautifully written Gustafsson blends literature with philosophy in a very poignant way within these short stories. I would strongly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys the combination of those things.
