The Best Intentionsby Ingmar Bergman, Joan Tate (Translator)
Bergman was inspired to write this loosely biographical novel when he began rummaging through the voluminous family picture/i>
Set in the decade beginning in 1908, The Best Intentionsis, ultimately, a love story on many different levels: a man and woman in love; parents and children; and love as miracle, that love which is overriding and ,so often inexplicable.
Bergman was inspired to write this loosely biographical novel when he began rummaging through the voluminous family picture albums. That, plus family letters and records, and his own memories and unique imagination, helped him recreate this lost world in evocative and graphic detail.
Incorporating some of the elements of stage and screen, including filimic dialogues and personal "asides", which he weaves artfully into the narrative flow, Bergman has written a novel of great beauty and uncompromising honesty, a work filled with joy and sadness, sacrifice and reconciliation---and above all, abiding love.
