Lot 911: Five letters in Swedish, including one ALS and four TLSs, most signed "Ingmar," totaling seven pages, dated from 1964 to 1992. All are to Swedish writer and journalist Ingmar Bjorksten. One letter, January 25, 1988, in part (translated): "I read your book and I think it is affecting, brave and desperate. You can have different views about form, style and language. I don't understand such things when I read. I am very thankful when I get touched emotionally and I may take the risk of passing the magic line between the critic and his object. I think you wrote a painful and touching book." Another, dated May 18, 1992, in part (translated): "The editing of Backanterna prevented me from doing it. If you like to have a massive surge of adrenaline, you should begin to cut a videotape with the length of 60.000 meters (30 hours) electronically. This is insufferable work, which nearly brought me to hospital (I never worked electronically before, but I thought I should learn something new at my advanced age. I learned nothing, expect that this method is obsolete and only works with Song Festivals and Ice Hockey). Being angry every day is not useful, at least not for me." In overall fine condition. Accompanied by four original mailing envelopes.
