Summary
"The story takes place in the 1950s in the suburbs of Stockholm, in the university town of Lund, and the United States. Neta's childhood is dominated by geographical movements. She reads -- words give form to the vagueness of existence -- and is often busy thinking about the female sex, family, and the stupendous diversity of people in the world. Her dad, a mathematician, and her mom, a musician, are very different from each other. They are in constant conflict, but she loves them both. Slowly she realizes that she's grown up in a lie. She must carefully tread through the war zone that her parents' marriage is increasingly turning into"--
