9780143115991: Benny & Shrimp

Why is it so impossible to get a relationship to work between two mature single people, driven by enormous longing and loudly ticking biological clocks?

In alternate chapters, Benny and "Shrimp" tell the story of a love that started by mistake in a village cemetery, a love that should not really be as complicated as it seems. She is a childless young widow with a sharp intellect and a home so tidy that even her jam jars are in alphabetical order. He is a gentle, overworked milk farmer, who fears becoming the village's Old Bachelor. The attraction between them is powerful. But how will she learn to accept that he falls asleep at the opera and has a house full of his mother's embroidered wall hangings, and how could he ever feel at home in her minimalist apartment, bare as a dentist's waiting room?

Set against a charming Swedish backdrop, Benny & Shrimp is a quirky, humorous tale, beautifully told, in which Katarina Mazetti breathes new life into the age-old conundrum that is love...
