Table Read interviews Nan Östman's publisher about this first English translation from the Swedish

Nan Östman (1923-2015) was a much-loved Swedish author - and now her novel, "Some Kind of Company" is, at last, available in English (thanks to Aspal Press). The Table Read books website interviewed UK publisher Vivien Prais (of Aspal Press) who found the original novel and has just published the first English translation. In the interview, Vivien says, "I was particularly attracted to the gentle nature of the story ... it is very different from the genre of Swedish noir which we have become accustomed to in recent years ... I am happy to know that I have made a delightful story available to English readers who would otherwise not have access to it". Click here to read the whole interview.
