Divine intervention

Recently decided to rewatch one of JAL's more obscure interviews, a conversation he had with Dan-Erik Sahlberg at the 2016 literature festival in Sigtuna . This is one of several interviews Sahlberg has conducted with JAL, and since the former is a devout Christian, a large portion of the interviews...

About that photo... I suppose this is a typical Swedish pose meaning, um, I"M DONE , yes? Are there other poses we should be aware of? :)

New JAL novel: Verkligheten

Today John announced that he'd finished writing a new short novel titled Verkligheten (meaning "Reality"). He first mentioned it in an interview in the literature talk show Babel on March 26 (at the 12:00 mark): I've now put [both The Value and The Pigs ] aside because I've started writing a book ca...

Naomi is the combination of Oskar’s mother and policeman Staffan?
Staffan and/or Gunnar Holmberg. Maybe a bit of Karin from LTODD as well.
