Nya röster sjunger samma sånger New Voices Sing Old Songs

Liza Marklund has been a columnist in Swedish and international press for 25 years. For the first time, many of her pieces are now collected in a dense volume that paints a broad and varied picture of her life, journalism and authorship over a quarter of a century. Marklund reflects on the downside of success, its vulnerability and loneliness, the joy of children and everyday life, the importance of daring to be naked (and not just without clothes). She displays her passionate commitment to the most vulnerable: the battered women, the abused children, and the men falsely accused of terrorism. She also reveals the embarrassing mistakes, the hilarious misunderstandings and the columns she didn’t have the courage to publish at the time.

New Voices Sing Old Songs is a warm, sharp and intimate portrait of one of Sweden’s most successful and controversial authors.


  • “Liza Marklund’s New Voices Sing Old Songs is an important and very urgent book. She is not silent. She screams in anger and righteous rage. Listen to her.”

    Helsingborgs Dagblad, Sweden

  • “Fearless debater, skilled columnist and extraordinarily successful author – there is only one person that can measure up to Liza Marklund in contemporary Sweden: her colleague Jan Guillou.”
