I was browsing through one of my favourite sites The Daily Coyote the other day, when I found a link to the author's grandmother's blog, Svensto. It's absolutely brilliant. I've just started reading from the start, and have probably only read about 10 posts, but she writes so well. She was a Swedish immigrant to the States in the 1930s and just writes stories about things that happened throughout her life, like the boat trip to New York, on which she met Greta Garbo.
