A couple of years ago I was working as a popcorn vendor at a town festival. Across from me was a fortune-teller. On my break I traded a prediction for a medium popcorn. She told me that I would stay healthy but suffer memory problems when I get older and pass away at an age of 87. The stories in this book are a collection of memories for myself if I end up as an 87-year-old lady without memory. / Helga Härenstam This is her first book. Title of the Swedish edition is Berättelser för en 87 år gammal dam.
