Hello, dear reader! Here at my blog you will find glimpses of joy, Stockholm, my numerous museum visits, funny and serious stuff worth noticing - all in journalese and sometimes in Swedish. With this also comes a pinch of analyses and reflections. This is a dynamic blog, meaning I sometimes go back in the archive and update the posts. If you are following my blog from a phone, click on "View web version" at the bottom of the page - it facilitates the reading. Enjoy! /Jana :)

Patricia Highsmith, Patricia Highsmith
Someone has to say it. Have you noticed that one by one, all of Patricia Highsmith's novels are being filmed? And that the films are worth watching? That if anything is proof of the greatness of her authorship, even decades later. So, shall we speculate about which book is next in the line to become a script? I have not read all of her works, so my guess is either one of the stories that depicts something current in our time, or something that a film has not been made about for a while. What do you think?
Update: I vote for "Carol", first published as "A pinch of salt"!
Update on update: I was right!!!
Noreover, how convenient: the name could allude to "A Christmas Carol".
