  1. My name is Eva Nahlin and I am a Swedish literature student. By coincidence I got hold of a book by Eillen Bassing (she is not published in Sweden unfortunately) and the book fascinated me a lot. I have tried to find information about Eileen Bassing but there is next to no information to be find about her life and authorship. I would be very happy if I could get permission to read the articles about her. It is solely for my own purpose. Best regards Eva

  2. I am compiling information on women authors of this period who collaborated with writer husbands, as in the case of Eileen Bassing and her husband Bob. However, as with reader Eva above I can find next to nothing about her. If you do have information, would you let me know where to go about looking for it? Thanks, Maia Haines
