“There Are Things I Want You to Know” about Stieg Larsson and Me is a book about politics and love, about coffee and conversation, about writing and friendship, and about Stieg Larsson and Eva Gabrielsson, the woman who shared the Millennium Trilogy author’s life for thirty years.
In honor of the June 21 publication of the book, Seven Stories Press is offering readers of Eva and of Millennium the chance to ask Eva Gabrielsson the questions they’ve always wanted to ask about her life with Stieg, the Millennium trilogy’s genesis and its future, and her thoughts about the meaning of the life’s work she and Stieg shared: the work of their political commitment and action against fascism, political corruption, and the systematic oppression of women, work in which the Millennium books (originally titled “Men Who Hate Women” in Sweden) played only one small part.
Questions for Eva should be posted on Twitter using the hashtag #StiegandEva, (which will also be used to mark media coverage and event notices for the book.) Only questions posted before 11:59 PM on Monday, June 20 will be considered.
Eva Gabrielsson will then record a video response to her favorite of the questions, which will be released on June 28 in this space and across the Internet.
Thanks very much for those who choose to participate: now, what are the things you want to know about #StiegandEva?
