Books Info:

The Garden (Changelings) free pdf Long description: This novel is based on the life of Linnaeus, the eighteenth-century, Swedish enlightenment figure famous for his taxonomy or scientific classification still used in biology. It principally concerns the different ways Linnaeus and his gardener interpret the world around them. The gardener perceives plants for what they are in themselves and Linnaeus for what they are in relation to other things. They never understand each other and the dialogues are wonderfully inconclusive.

Magnus Florin, who was born in Uppsala in 1955, was first published in 1989 with Berattelsens gang (The Narrative Flow). This was followed by Tror du pa denna historia?

An opera staged the Drottningholm Theatre in 1999 was based on The Garden. He has worked on dramatisations, including Marcel Proust's In Search of Lost Time for Swedish Radio in 2009).
