This book occupies an uncategorisable niche. Think of it as an extended essay, or meditation, not about Sweden or fishing - neither of which interest me in the slightest - though of course it is, but more of an elegy for 'the kind of spacious, useful and honourable life' (restricted, yes, but organic) that 'all went to hell' after the euphoria of 1989 and the quaintly named 'neoliberal' wave that succeeded it. No doubt there were other factors besides the wall coming down - globalization, containerisation and so forth were already at large - but in all this we (read: our representatives) lost sight of the human factor, blinded by dollar signs. Like any essay, and the best memoirs, this is itself organic - life writing at its finest
