Journal Entry 1 by Fluffy-Owl from Chichester, West Sussex United Kingdom on Saturday, March 25, 2006
From the blurb:

"It is Thursday May the 8th, 1945, and Vera, our mother, is standing deep inside the drying loft in Church Road, unpegging the clothes that have become dry and soft up there in the course of the night. And she laughs quickly as she stretches up to the slack clothes lines which feel rough against her fingers and which can easily sting if she isn't careful. It's Vera, our mother, who stands thus, alone in the drying loft; she laughs and drops the wooden pegs down into the wide pocket of her apron, and carefully places item after item in the woven basket beside her. She is warm and she is thinking of nothing; she's just full to the brim with a great and curious joy, like nothing she has ever known before. Because she feels new now. There has been war for five years and in the summer she'll be twenty; and it's now, right now that her life is beginning..."

Winner of the Nordic Prize for Literature 2002.
