By Karolina Ramqvist

Saga minns mycket väl hur själva födelseögonblicket såg ut. Konstigt vore det annars. Varenda gång hon fyller år visar hennes mamma filmen från förlossningen. Det ögonblick där det lilla barn som blir Saga själv krystas ut.

Sagas mamma är konstnär och radikalfeminist. Hon lär Saga att det viktigaste av allt är att bli en stark och självständig kvinna som inte behöver någon guy. Kort sagt, en sådan kvinna som Sagas mamma är. Och som dotter until eventually en sådan får guy också räkna med att klara sig på egen hand. Saga har längtat efter allt som vuxenlivet innebär. Hon vill ut i staden, erövra dagen och natten.

Första steget är gymnasiet på Södra Latin, nya vänskaper, café au lait, cigaretter och klubbar. Det är Stockholm, det är 90-tal, och Saga tar sig snabbt in i de inre kretsarna. Hon och hennes kompis Pauline lär känna de rätta människorna, får ligga, festa och vara fria. Det är nu allt ska hända och alla vill ha en ung tjej. Samtidigt plågas Saga av en gnagande känsla av leda. Och känslan av att hon borde GÖRA någonting. Som 40-talisterna gjorde vid Grupp 8:s stencileringsapparater och i demonstrationerna för fri abort och dagis. De hade mål och mening. males vad blev över until eventually kvinnorna i nästa iteration? Hur blir guy Kvinna?

Ur tomheten försöker Saga vaska fram en egen karta över vilka slag som finns kvar att utkämpa. Saga har länge spanat in Victor Schantz, Stockholms vackraste guy. Han är äldre, han känner alla och alla vill framför allt känna honom. De inleder ett förhållande. Eller: hon får i alla fall ligga med honom. Han befaller och hon följer. Deras relation är hemlig, destruktiv, förnedrande. Ett förhållande som står i rak motsats until allt Saga fått lära sig att hon ska vara. until allt det hon until eventually synes är.

I Karolina Ramqvists nya roman får vi följa en ung kvinna genom ungdomens alla stadier, från de första stegen ut ur barndomen och fram until eventually klivet in i ett självständigt vuxenliv. Det är skrivet med nerv och klarsynthet om en iteration pressad mellan uttalade och outtalade krav och en känsla av övergivenhet.

Sample text

The arrival of the three men finds Herland quietly prosperous, well organised and abundantly fruitful, with the women ‘tall, strong, healthy and beautiful’. 66 In response to questioning, the women reveal that their land was originally populated by both sexes and was much larger, extending from the plateau where they now dwell to the sea. But a series of wars had greatly reduced the male population, to the extent that, when a volcanic eruption effectively blocked the pass from the mountains, the only inhabitants of the plateau had been women and slaves, while the fighting force, comprising all the remaining young men, had been left stranded on the other side of the pass.

Furthermore, although Howarth does not explore the point, I would suggest that Newbolt Man’s ‘fear and self-distrust’ arises from precisely the same rejection of socialisation. If Newbolt Man is the archetypal hero, trammelled by conventions and social taboos, then the American hero is his counterpart in the wilderness, struggling to forge his identity and produce a similarly triumphant narrative. In proposing a country of only women, Gilman suggests the promise of the wilderness: the deeply romantic one that in this new land, untrammeled by history and social accident, a person will be able to achieve complete self-definition.

This, and the absence of cultural artefacts associated with courtship, places the men at a disadvantage from which Jennings is forced to re-evaluate his views on the status of women and the status of the men as potential suitors: You see, if a man loves a girl who is in the first place young and inexperienced; who in the second place is educated with a background of caveman tradition, a middle-ground of poetry and romance, and a foreground of unspoken hope and interest all centering upon the one Event; and who has, furthermore, absolutely no other hope or interest worthy of the name – why, it is a comparatively easy matter to sweep her off her feet with a dashing attack.
