Walking in the foot-steps of war and disasters, horror meets beauty, and the power of life breaks the walls in a childs laughter. Who are we? What are the strange seeds of persistence that concurs the darkness?

Reviews
'Birgitta Lundholm is something in a Swedish literary context as unusual, as a talented absurdist. A hard to capture cross between the poet Kristina Lugn and the columnist Runa Brar..." "She moves thru a suburb mined by surprises, with sovereign contempt for the normal borders of story telling"
(Tomas Löfström Sydsvenska dagbladet 27/3 1991)
"Absurd dreams. Debut in the outmost limits of fantasy... she writes with a playful and bitter irony... in the incisive visions of an informing society, where Big Brothers control assisted by security hysteria and a standardization that suffocates every expression of individuality, the laughter get stuck in the throat"
(Eva Ottosson Svenska Dagladet 27/3 1991)
