The misadventures of two unlucky brothers in arms make for a tragicomic saga about friendship, failure, creativity and endurance. Is there no end to these words of yours, to your long-winded blustering? Job That book announced the arrival of a writer who could combine epic range with an unstoppable sentence-by-sentence energy. A million entrepreneurial ideas bite the dust; wives walk away in terminal disappointment; the blows of fate range from a cake-fork to the jugular during a Buddhist wedding through to cancer, bereavement and prison rape. Plough fields, fight off hard Viking penises, bake.
Quicksand by Steve Toltz review – brilliantly dark | Fiction | The Guardian
The series was commissioned in following the immense popularity of Giolito's novel. A school shooting takes place at Djursholm senior high school. At the age of 18, Maja Norberg is arrested and suspected of murder. The protagonist admits the murder at an early stage but denies the crime — the trial is rather about why the murder was committed than whether it was committed. Like in the novel, the story is told from the main character's perspective, with events flashing back and forth between the present day and her memories of events that led up to the shooting. Quicksand is not based on a real-life event but the story was written to reflect real-life class inequalities that its creators saw in Sweden. On 7 September , it was announced that Netflix had given the production a series order for a first season.
