A world gone mad : the diaries of Astrid Lindgren, 1939-45 / Astrid Lindgren. - London : Pushkin Press, 2016. - 235 p. ill. ; 24 cm.

Foreword by Karen Nyman.

Before she became internationally known for her children's books, Astrid Lindgren was an aspiring author living in Stockholm with her family at the outbreak of the Second World War. These diaries, until recently stored in a wicker laundry basket in her Dalagatan home, offer a civilian, a mother, and an aspiring writer's unique account of a world devastated by conflict.

Translated from Swedish by Sarah Death.
