‘Cassi’ published in Sweden

Cassi hadn’t always been drinking instant coffee from a PET bottle for breakfast, or numbed her evenings with a bag-in-box. She had gone from being successful, popular and happy, to being frustrated, depressed and wine-soaked in less than a year.

In an impulsive attempt to escape her life, she accidentally buys a secluded cottage in the countryside. But when she moves in, rumors have already spread that Cassi is an experienced self-help guru.

Instead of explaining the misunderstanding, she decides to embrace her new role and begins guiding the locals through their various problems. She creates a new existence with improvised forms of therapy, makeshift yoga and magical stones, and, to her surprise, a few really good friends.

But when has a life built on lies ever been a good idea?

Cassi is Johanna Swanberg’s literary debut; a book about hitting rock bottom and finding your way back, written with both humor and darkness.
