'a skilfully balanced book, a work of considerable literary merit and musical integrity' - The Australian
Linda Olsson's first novel, Let Me Sing You Gentle Songs, was an international hit. Hundreds of thousands of copies have sold in the US and Europe, especially in Sweden, where Linda is now a major literary figure. In NZ it has sold nearly 8000 copies. Sonata for Miriam is being published around the world, including by Penguin in the US, and similar success is expected. Linda Olsson was born in Stockholm, Sweden. She has lived in Kenya, Singapore, Britain and Japan and has been a permanent resident of New Zealand since 1990.
