Product Details


“Charming…Kallifatides has a novelist’s ear for anecdote, a dramatist’s for dialogue, and a poet’s for aphorism.” —Times Literary Supplement

“Kallifatides has written an unusual and refreshing memoir…A fascinating look into a prolific author’s mind, especially welcome since there have not been enough English translations of his books.” —Kirkus Reviews

“The work of Greek-born Swedish writer Theodor Kallifatides is not widely known in the United States. But based on the merits of his charming, late-life memoir…that shameful wrong needs to be righted. Slender in size, yet anything but slight in scope, this inviting meditation on age, writing and sense of place, beautifully translated into English by Marlaine Delargy, is witty, profound and thoroughly captivating…[an] exquisite book.” —BookPage

“[A] poetic and philosophical memoir…Traveling in his mind, Kallifatides produces a restless and thought-provoking read.” —World Literature Today

“In his elegiac, tender meditation on migrations, both geographic and psychic—from one country to another, from one language to another, from youth to old age, from the time of the present to memories of the past—Kallifatides offers his reader a personal politics of the human.” —Siri Hustvedt, author of The Blazing World

“Down to the smallest comma, it’s a pleasure to read Another Life.” —Svenska Dagbladet
“Wonderful…The strongest pages of Theodor Kallifatides’s writing—the delicate, finely philosophical—characterize his new work Another Life, a thin book with deep insights.” —Arbetarbladet
“Kallifatides’s relationship to the words and the story resembles a fifty-year love affair.” —Sveriges Radio
