The Cigarette Afterwards

Horace Engdahl

Literary historian and critic, linguist and member of the Swedish Academy, Horace Engdahl continues to study the world around him, investigating our daily struggles, literature and its critique, history and our dreams. In these short textual fragments, with a dry sense of humour, he contemplates the end of the world; “I’m sure the idea of it would be completely bearable, if only you could have a cigarette afterwards.”

The follow-up to his previous collection, the acclaimed Meteors, Horace Engdahl shows us the familiar from a fresh point of view, in a voice that is entirely his own.
