Ivar Lo Johansson
Birth: Feb. 23, 1901
Death: Apr. 11, 1990

Author and social critic with a writing career spanning half a century. He was of low working class background, both of his parents were crofters. Ivar left school at the age of eleven, but educated himself thereafter. He early work was as a quarryman, building worker and journalist. In the early 1920s he became involved in the Social Democratic Party, to which he always remained loyal. His writings mostly deal with working class people and the underdogs in society and this is the reason he is sometimes compared to John Steinbeck. As with Steinbeck Lo-Johansson's books also an had unusual sense of humor. Some of his books were also turned into successful films. (bio by: Björn Haglund)
