50 words for Love in Swedish
From bageri (bakery) to vitsippa (wood anemone) via Björn Borg, Saab and smörgåsbord, Stephen Keeler delights us with 50 words that capture the essence of his love affair with Sweden.
Newly-qualified as a teacher in 1973, Stephen chanced upon an advert in the Times Educational Supplement and soon found himself whisked to Mariestad in Sweden to teach English. Over the intervening decades he fell in love with the country and its polite, generous and loving people. This book charts his life there through 50 words: objects, places and people. As Marika Cobbold says: a joy from beginning to end.
