By Nils Claesson
Blåbärsmaskinen är Nils Claessons berättelse om sin uppväxt och om sin a ways, Stig ”Slas” Claesson. Författaren ger här sin egen bild av ”Slas”, males inte den allmänt traderade bilden av den folkkäre författaren och konstnären, utan en bild inifrån, från en familj där faderns missbruk och kändisskap har en betydligt mindre tilltalande sida. Berättelsen handlar om den sprakande fasaden hos en omsusad författare och konstnär och om det som finns bakom fasaden, om skapande och ansvar, och om vad som händer när ett barn måste bli förälder until eventually sina föräldrar. males det är också berättelsen om en uppväxt i Stockholm på 1960- och 1970-talet, om kulturkrockar och om ett Sverige i förvandling. Nils Claessons skildring av sin uppväxt och av sin some distance är samtidig rättfram och ömsint, skoningslöst uppriktig och försonande. Ett sällsynt finkänsligt och humoristiskt porträtt av en människa, en familj och en tid.
