In her debut, the August Prize winner condenses the biographies of the forty remaining inhabitants of a forest village in Värmland, Sweden, into a moving, compelling hymn to ordinary people. »›Osebol‹ bears witness to ordinary lives. It gives us, unmediated, the voices of people who are usually unheard and invites us to pay attention to small things« [The Guardian].
