Question about this vs Paper Walls

Post by CyberGhostface » Tue Aug 28, 2012 9:57 pm

Is the US version of Paper Walls going to include all of the stories from LTODD or just some of them? Or vice versa? Just wondering if I should import the UK book as I prefer the title LTODD to Paper Walls but if one has more stories than the others?

EDIT: Just read JAL's post. So are both books the same?

I have not heard that the US release will contain anything different from the UK release. The UK release contains English translations of all of the stories from Pappersväggar, plus the English translation of the story Låt de gamla drömmarna dö . There is also a translation of the afterword from Pappersväggar, and a translation of the Foreword to the Swedish edition of Let the Old Dreams Die.
...the story derives a lot of its appeal from its sense of despair and a darkness in which the love of Eli and Oskar seems to shine with a strange and disturbing light.
