“It’s excellent, the Schunnesson.” Ian Sansom, TLS

Bibbs is just about to turn thirty-nine. She has been a reality show star but the good life is beginning to slip through her fingers and there seems to be a never-ending flow of unexpected expenditures. Her boyfriend, Baby, has always provided stability and when he dumps her out of the blue, she is also faced with an ultimatum: if she wants to keep the flat she must pay 100 000 Krona within a week. She no longer has access to that kind of money and Bibbs is forced to make extreme decisions. Days & Days & Days is a pitch perfect study of success and destruction, dependence and betrayal, celebrity and anonymity.
