Gregorius 

Gregorius (2007)
A novel by Bengt Ohlsson

 

"Both a riveting novel on its own merits and an astonishing gloss on an earlier masterpiece."
Margaret Atwood


Bengt Ohlsson, one of Sweden's most successful young writers, has responded to the classic Doctor Glas with Gregorius, which is the voice of Pastor Gregorius over the course of what could be his last and fateful summer. Gregorius is a rancorous, malodorous, and unattractive figure married to a girl young enough to be his granddaughter. But his sense of his own mortality, of his personal inadequacy, and his tenuous hold on happiness are uniquely absorbing and haunting. It is a compelling study of loneliness, longing, and the nature of love, the desires that bring people together and the fears that keep them apart.
