11 Jan Will Dean Interview | Mini Episode
Will Dean is our guest author for this mini episode of the Love Your Library podcast, talking about his brand new book The Last Thing to Burn. You may already know Will from his brilliant series about Swedish journalist Tuva, which began with the much acclaimed novel Dark Pines and was followed by Red Snow and Black River. Will is a romantic ideal of an author, living with his family in a cabin in the middle of a Swedish elk forest, as isolated as one of the characters is his Dark Pine novel – although of course not nearly as creepy!
His latest novel is very different, set not in Sweden but instead in the isolation of the East Midland Fens. It’s been described as a cross between Emma Donaghue’s Room and Stephen King’s Misery. We also talked about Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men, as well as the Beck series of novels by Maj Sjowall and Per Wahloo and the Scottish writer Val McDermid.
