Excerpts from book review of "Woman, Artist, Always a Rebel"
by L-E Selin, Svenska Dagbladet 9 September 1996 (second largest Swedish Newspaper):

"..brilliant" ".. her fighting spirit has not faded, the importance of never giving up is emphasised more than once"

"..a book permeated by optimism, humor and high spirits.."

"Around Helga, in her childhood home, is an abundance of colorful cultural personalities.."

"..Witty.." "..a great amount of detail about an upper class home in Stockholm in the 1920's and 30's" "..if one were to make a movie about this it might be like Ingmar Bergman's Fanny and Alexander"
