There is much naive charm to be found in this story of a young girl who finds both a new friend and the hope for a new life through her growing interest in jazz... this is a loving, quietly charming... portrayal of jazz as a music which salves the soul of a misfit, brings her friendship and a sense of camaraderie and connects the future with the past. * Glasgow Sunday Herald * Wonderful Feels Like This is a gifted and moving novel, elegantly translated from the Swedish... Lovestam can make difficult narrative feats look easy (the way she can sketch character so economically, using only a few telling brushstrokes, is especially engaging) and the sharply observed central relationship draws you into its poignancy and quiet heroism. * Sydney Morning Herald * Sensitive and deeply moving: outstanding. * Kirkus Reviews * Empathy, identity, and the transformative power of music bind this tale of an atypical friendship between a teenage outcast and a jazz musician. * Publishers Weekly * Lovestam is a musical writer, with such an eye on language and storytelling that she can do almost anything she wants... She writes with the perfect pitch. -- Malin Persson Giolito * Amelia * A well written, warm and cosy story about how unexpectedly you can find a friend when you most need one. -- Stefan Holm * Varmland Folkblad * I know of no writer who can make me so genuinely happy as Sara Lovestam does... And if I'm ever asked what is the best book I've ever read, I will definitely answer: Wonderful Feels Like This. * Annika Koldenius *
A feel-good story of an unconventional friendship between an old retired jazz musician and a young girl who is trying to find her place in the world.See all Product description
