No Swedish book published in 2008 has a higher literary content than Enquist's Another Life. I even dare to say that this is the big book of the year in Europe.
- Gabi Gleichmann in the Evening Post

Enquist's memoir novel Another Life Comes in Norwegian, and he himself comes to the Literature House to talk about his writing. As a child, Enquist mostly sat and drew fictional maps. The world of childhood extended to him no more than to Bureå. Still, he would travel and spend much of his life abroad - in Berlin, New York, Paris, Copenhagen. The play Tribades Night brought him all the way to Broadway. As a writer he got a great, international
breakthrough. At the same time, a personal crisis emerged. How could things go so bad when things went so well?
