Contemporary Swedish novelist, story-writer, poet, critic and professor.
Lars Gustafsson was born May 17, 1936, in Väteras, Sweden. He earned the equivalent of an American doctorate at the University of Uppsala in 1962. He has published novels, stories, poems, drama, and literary criticism, and was the editor of Sweden's leading literary magazine Bonnier Litterära Magasin from 1962-1972. He presently teaches in his adopted state of Texas, at the University of Texas at Austin.
“Lars Gustafsson ... loves to play with possibilities and solutions in a manner that is refreshingly affirmative. For those willing to follow his tales to their epiphanic moments, Stories of Happy People offers an intellectual adventure of the highest order.”
