To whom it may concern,

I am now completing my M.A. thesis on Nordic Women's Life-writing and trying to find the English version of Selma Lagerlöf’s Ett barns memoarer: Mårbacka (1930) -- translated as “Memories of My Childhood: Further Years at Mårbacka” (V.S. Howard,1934), and her translated diary as well: Dagbok för Selma Ottilia Lovisa Lagerlöf (1932) -- “The Diary of Selma Lagerlöf” (V.S. Howard,1936).

I was hoping that you could help me to get access to the two e-books or allow me to borrow them from somewhere.

Is there any information you can share with me? Thanking you in advance for your time and any advice or suggestions you may have. I would very much appreciate your reply.

I couldn't find the books you asked for in any library in Finland but both books can be found in Stockholm, Sweden. "The diary of Selma Lagerlöf" is available in Stockholm City Library and you can make an interlibrary loan for that book. "Memories of My Childhood" can be found in Kungliga Biblioteket (National Library of Sweden) but it seems the book can be used only in the Reading Room. You can also send your question to a swedish "Ask a Librarian -service" Bibblan svarar: http://bibblansvarar.se/
