Stig Dagerman was considered to be Sweden's next great literary phenomenon for his critically acclaimed fiction and essays published during the late 1940s and early 1950s. Then in 1954, at the age of 31, he committed suicide. His work is currently experiencing a revival in the United States and Europe as several noted authors, translators, and publishers have praised his writing. Working with the author's daughter, Lo Dagerman, Steven Hartman, UAlbany Ph.D. graduate and former graduate assistant at the Writers Institute, has translated and published a number of Stig Dagerman's stories in American literary magazines since the early 1990s. These translations have been collected in the new volume, Sleet (2013).
