Albatros Agency, in collaboration with Norstedts Agency, are representing the film and tv rights to Kristina Sandberg’s award winning trilogy “Att föda ett barn”, “Sörja för de sina” and “Liv till varje pris”.
The motivation for the August Prize for Best Fiction 2014:
“Some life journeys remain invisible. The novel Liv till varje pris is the last instalment in a trilogy where each unit is its own whole. With her epos about housewife Maj, Kristina Sandberg shows that a whole odyssey can be contained within the walls of a flat in Örnsköldsvik. A fragile and wounded family life in the well-fare state is depicted with distance and empathy. Carefully the smell of cooking, the laundry fumes, the dangerous salty sea breeze is registered.
We are standing next to Maj in the kitchen with the great questions of life and a what shall she make for dinner?”
