Stieg Larsson, My FriendeBook - 2010
This is a candid and rounded memoir in which Baksi answers the questions a multitude of Larsson's readers and admirers have already asked: about his upbringing; the recurring death threats from neo-Nazi groups; his insomnia; his prodigious capacity for work on causes about which he was passionate; his feminism--so evident in his novels--and his dogmatism. But Baksi also reveals concern about Stieg's well-being, and his uncompromising side, which sometimes got him into trouble. What was he like as a colleague? Who provided the inspiration for his now-immortal characters (Baksi is one of the few who appears as himself)? Who was Lisbeth Salander?
Stieg Larsson, My Friendis an eloquent and troubling insight into the life of a man who has rapidly become one of the world's bestselling authors.
