Siblings is the story of ten children, nine of whom are brought up by the eldest who, apart from being the narrator, is keen, capable and obedient to his parents. He has been taught to care for the other nine but also to control them. When the parents are dead and he is in charge, they try to resist him but it is not easy, such are the bonds that tie them together. This is set in a time of generational change from a strict and disciplined society, in which the acquisition of skills is crucial, to a society that is more relaxed (at least for those who don’t have such an elder brother), deskilled and drawn to consumerism.
This novel is not just about the claustrophobic nature of the nuclear family; it is also about the interdependence of the powerful and the powerless, but in the end that bond has to be broken as the reader will discover.

Magnus Florin, who was born in Uppsala in 1955, is known for his stylish and intense novellas that have the scope of a novel, because they are so pared down. He was first published in 1989 with The Narrative Flow. In 1995 his highly successful novel on the life of Linnaeus, The Garden, was published and in 2014 we brought out the English version. The German version in 2013 had attracted a great deal of critical attention. He has written poetry, short prose works and five other novels. An opera staged at the Drottningholm Theatre in 1999 was based on The Garden.
