The Sole Medicine

ByOla NormelliDaisy Kosmider

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
How do we tell our story once the dust settles? Can writing be therapy, or even medicine? A vivid flashback from a sunny day in the park starts a stream of reflections. From attraction to love. From intimacy to doubt. From denial to collapse. The nameless characters get thrown into an emotional web of cinematic romance, therapeutic memories, and feverish dreams of hope and regret. Can there ever be a final chapter in an illusory plot? Ola Normelli’s poetic debut is about understanding our own shortcomings. The Sole Medicine is the result of one year’s daily morning writings. The Swedish original, Den enda medicinen, was published in 2019, and was translated into English by Normelli in 2021. “An intelligent use of language, where small-scale words shape epic emotions. A wayward kind of literature, bordering Charlie Kaufman’s Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.” – Reza Parsa, Film director & screenwriter (Before the Storm) “A melancholic observation of life and existence, constantly balancing between what we expect and what we, in the end, receive.” – Conny Palmkvist, Author & literary critic (Sundets röda nejlikor)
