Farewell to Panic Beach


Farewell to Panic Beach is a novel about a family that seems to live on a stage where dazzling light and abysmal darkness alternate. In a winding narrative that stretches from 1917 to the present day, we follow the shifts between generations in Kungstornet in Stockholm. During summers, they travel to Panic Beach, an eternity beach filled with animal skeletons and solitary children's games. Much later, a daughter sits in a wintry Berzelii Park with memories of a family filled with losers and exalted ones, all while the shimmering and frightening glow of Panic Beach fades away. Sara Stridsberg has written a magnificent novel about guilt, truth and hope, about saying goodbye, finally and forever.
