Pillowtalk with Asa Larsson

Staff reporter | 19 February, 2013 00:15
ASA LARSSON

What are you reading?

I am reading Dark Mountains: A Chronicle of the Iron Fields of Lapland by Gunnar Ahlström.

In a nutshell?

The book is a chronicle of the iron fields in Lapland and of our history in the far north of Sweden.

I think that everyone who can should try to read about their home region - in the form of non-fiction as well as fiction. Learning about your roots gives you greater self-awareness and self-esteem.

Larsson is author of 'The Black Path' and 'Until The Wrath be Past'
