Stockholm var en småstad men ingen idyll när den femtonårige pojken Henning kom dit 1860 Att få arbete var svårt och illa betalda var de yrken den okunnige pojken prövade Han blir sjåare i hamnen men får sedan ett lindrigare arbete Tillsammans med den kvinna han efter några år gifter. The boy dreamed The city waitedToday would have been Per Anders Fogelstr m s 100th birthday and I m trying to sum up some thoughts on his most well known and loved achievement the City series five novels tracking the growth of Stockholm and of Swedish society from 1860 to 1968 A time when my country went from being a dirt poor rural backwater at the edge of Europe to being a mostly working democracy with one of the highest standards of living in the world for almost everyone How We Got Here1860 The 15 year old orphan Henning Nilsson arrives in Stockholm to look for work If not for brand new railway and the factories that are springing up child labour 12 hour days you know the drill you d be forgiven for thinking it s 2 300 years earlier Stockholm and especially the south side where the poor folk live is a shanty town two families in every room A uarter of the population would eventually flee to the US The people who could at least farm for a living out in the country are forced to make money or starve and the only jobs available are hard But Henning meets Lotten and together they try to make a go of it to improve their lives at least a little to pass something on to their children even if it s just food on the table even if it s just not having to work yourself to death before your 40th birthday1860 It sounds forever ago especially for someone like me who s never had to starve or fear dying of cholera or TBC but then I think about it My grandfather who I knew well was born in 1906 He remembered the last great famine during WWI he remembered getting the right to vote he d known people who remembered the mid 19th century He never threw anything away That s how close it is What we have isn t god given it was earned Like I said the series sets about describing how a people rise from nothing but it does so with a tight lens Keeps the focus on the Nilsson family and a few others stays with the characters for their whole lives One of Henning s and Lotten s children is adopted by a rich family young enough to adapt old enough to remember his old family and live with a lifetime of guilt giving Fogelstr m access to both worlds But it s with the workers on the southside that his sympathies lie often with the women the ones who have the furthest to go and he follows them in detail step by step including those who stumble and fall and sometimes get up again From serfdom to democracy and wealth in four generations Yeah that s the big story but the one he tells is of the characters Of Henning who works himself into an early grave of his daughter Emelie who has to spend her whole life taking care of the whole family of all the children and grandchildren and great grandchildren who do their part in wrenching something out of nothing Or nothing out of something in some cases New ways of being men of being women of being of being citizens new opportunities and new challenges But all told through the day to day drudgery that only gets better so very slowly from each person s perspective If it gets better at all I haven t wept over a book this much in yearsFogelstr m s sense of presence of prescience Even when describing 1860 he captures the hustle and bustle of the city I ve made home Even when describing 1960 he echoes the 100 years that have passed in both the people and the buildings It s a book in four dimensions Nobody here feels like they re drawn in sepia tones they all live and struggle in the nowI read the first book in school then re read it a few years ago then read the next four parts this year I moved to Stockholm 17 years ago I can walk along the streets he describes I can barely imagine what they looked like Half the city has been levelled with dynamite the horses replaced with cars and trains almost all of the old houses are gone the new ones are all built within the novel but the little red wooden house Fogelstr m had Lotten and Henning move into still stands as a memory The flats next to where people worked themselves to death now sell for millions Despite all the hardship desperation and failure in these books they re shot through with optimism that when the kids are united they can never be a fair society can be built with cooperation It is possible because it happened Fogelstr m has Emelie Nilsson see it all unfold But it s also only possible because people kept working at it It s not something we are it s something we have to keep doing She felt the city was in the world that the world concerned her that she had to dare walk out into it That you have to dare to be homeThe
