Translated by Johannes Goransson. "In lyrical vision and hypnotic spells, this book THE ANGELGREEN SACRAMENT, creates its own mythology...with subtle variations, repetitions and negations, it generates ethereal rhythms and ecstatic resonances as the language dissolves in a frighteningly beautiful song." from Swedish Radio's announcement of The Lyric Prize.
Eva Kristina Olsson, from Stockholm, Sweden, is the author of several books of poetry and plays, as well as a dancer, performer, and filmmaker. Her critically acclaimed title, The Angelgreen Sacraments (2017) was called by Aase Berg "tortuously beautiful...the best poetry collection of the year."
