Is this really Sweden?Air Raid Shelter on Lux Street is a collection of stories about a country where nothing is familiar anymore. The known has been invaded, a worldview has been shattered and safety has become a luxury. Story after story slams against the walls we have built to protect ourselves and shockwaves and disaster slowly begin to seep in through the cracks.While directing our gaze to the burning present, Jerker Virdborg also leads us into unstable spaces, charged with existential tension and yawning depths. With Air Raid Shelter on Lux Street, he consolidates his position as one of the most original writers of his generation.
