Description
An International BestsellerHerra Björnsson is at the beginning of the end of her life. She has two weeks left, maybe three, and has booked her cremation appointment. Until then she has cigarettes, a hand grenade, Facebook, and her memories to sustain her. And what memories. Herra moved Zelig-like through the major events of the twentieth century. And -- with a bawdy, uncompromising spirit -- she has survived it all unbowed by the forces of history.
