Plot of novel X

Post by Nightrider » Sun Jan 15, 2012 5:44 pm

This clip was already reproduced elsewhere on forums, but since JAL actually mentions new book's plot (at 0:13) I thought another stab at this short video would be appropriate.

Ah, the white people!

Reminds me of an animated short movie by Swedish horror artist Hans Arnold, called Fetknopparna. Here are some cels from that movie:

But from the beginning Eli was just Eli. Nothing. Anything. And he is still a mystery to me. John Ajvide Lindqvist

Short message from JAL posted on forum at http://johnajvide.com
Estoy aqui.
I regret my absence, but I'm not so inclined blog. I intend soon to update my own site here with a tale of "Five-known musician dead in series of crash '
As for X, so I have written fifty pages of it and this is just a very small part. I think it will be really long. All people, in all fifteen, stands ready for me. I wrote long monologues for each of them to get to the clarity with which they are, how they talk and think. X is true again is that a very large chamber play. All these different people isolated on a lawn that stretches to the horizon. There is a former professional soccer player, a married couple who are ICA retailers. With more and more. And a dog named Benny.
The writing of the book, however, was interrupted by the fact that I was offered to write a screenplay, an adaptation that it was impossible to refuse.

I am hoping he releases this one in English sooner than he did the others! I am looking forwards very much to this book!
