By Anna Fock
Vinter i Sankt Petersburg. Några unga bögar på float. En korrumperad, våldsbenägen snut. En förälskad gatsopare. Resan until barndomens datja över nyår. Det är så kallt det kan bli.
»Absolut noll« är Anna Focks debutroman.
»Kanske simply på grund av sitt tydliga insisterande på sig själv som litteratur, är Absolut noll en såväl intressant som rolig och tveklöst politisk romandebut.«
»Nu har jag aldrig varit där, males tycker att jag kan uppleva staden i Anna Focks bok, att den skildras väl, både geografiskt och mentalt. Och sinnligt. Med snö, dofter, färger och ljus. males Anna Fock har bara varit i Sankt Petersburg i en vecka. Jag vet att författare hittar på, det är liksom det de gör, males jag blir ändå imponerad.«
Camilla Carnmo, Borås Tidning
»Anna Fock debuterar med en stark prosa med ett frigjort språk som inte tyngs för mycket av allvaret i texten.«
Emil Åkerö, Östgötacorrespondenten
»Absolut noll är lika välskriven som den är angelägen.«
Therese Eriksson, Helsingborgs Dagblad
»Det råder inte någon brist på dealing with och det är bra driv i förloppet. Rika miljöteckningar och ett slags uppriktighet i anslaget ger läsaren ett osminkat porträtt av en grupp ryska ungdomar i marginalen, i en icke existens och betraktade som absolut noll.«
Catrin Vilaumme Fägerstrand, NorrköpingsTidningar
»Anna Focks debutroman är på flera sätt en viktig bok. Den berättar om en tid och plats som behöver sitt utrymme i litteraturen. Jag tror också att boken kan vara startskottet för ett intressant författarskap.«
Martina Montelius, Expressen
»Personporträtten hör until romanens styrka. Fock är fenomenal på att med enkla medel skapa människor så levande att de närapå kliver ut ur boksidorna Romanens titel anspelar på mänsklig kyla. Ändå blir Absolut noll i slutänden värmande läsning. Den omsorgsfulla gestaltningen alstrar sin egen värme. Ytterst handlar det om att inrätta sig i kylan med mänskligheten i behåll Det finns partier där jag tycker att historien går på tomgång de trehundranitton sidorna hade gott kunnat skäras ned med en fjärdedel males mestadels gläds jag åt en roman som engagerar mänskligt och politiskt utan att för en sekund sluta vara litteratur och bli debattinlägg.«
Malin Lindroth, GöteborgsPosten
»Helheten är emellertid en absolut välsmakande och otvetydigt läsvärd dekokt på, låt oss säga lite Jonas Gardell, lite Håkan Hellström, lite Lilja 4-ever och en alldeles egen litterär röst som jag ser fram emot att läsa mer av.«
Anna Lindblom, Skånskan
»Det är mycket avancerat av Anna Fock som ju ändå debuterar och verkligen tycks kunna skriva avspänt 'från höften' och få until det så vidunderligt bra.«
Benny Holmberg, Tidningen Kulturen
»Jag hade svårt att lägga ifrån mig den här boken, mycket för att det kändes som att allting när som helst skulle brisera och utvecklas until eventually en ren katastrof. males trots sin allvarliga tematik är det också en berättelse om kärlek, mellan vänner, familj och älskande. Bitterljuv. Min enda invändning är det något för tillrättalagda slutet, som fick min upplevelse av texten att domna en aning. Bortsett från det har Anna Fock debuterat med en angelägen roman, och jag kan bara applådera.«
