A Handfull of Rain

ORIGINAL TITLE: En handfull regn

AUTHOR: Niklas Rådström

ORIGINAL PUBLISHER: Albert Bonniers Förlag

GENRE: Fiction

In A Handful of Rain, a string of events leads Niklas Rådström back to the memories of his closest childhood friend, one of the early deceased. Together, they created a world of play and imagination, in close proximity to the crystal-clear source of all creativity. It was a world in constant expansion, of creativity and curiosity, transformation and commitment, but also a place where anxiety and fear of silence, loneliness and death lurked. Niklas Rådström has written a nakedly personal and honest book that spans a lifetime. It is a book about becoming and living as a human being and about the path that every human being must wander, through light and darkness. For many readers, A Handful of Rain has become an invaluable reflection on depression and suicide, for contemplation and comfort.
