Alaska Sanders case, a novel that is part of a trilogy
This book also marks the return of Marcus Goldman’s adventures after parenthesis. The mystery of room 622:
“When I wrote this first book, my dream was to get to the end of the Harry Quebert trilogy. I didn’t have a published book at the time. My previous five novels had been rejected by all the editors, and I said: myself The Truth About the Harry Quebert Incident no one would read it, it wasn’t that serious, and I had made up my mind to make a trilogy. This incredible success (…) made me a little bit sad. I said to myself “I can’t do volume 2” and did volume 3 directly, Baltimore Book, published in 2015, followed by two more novels. And finally, I wanted to try this trilogy. I started this book by saying to myself “I’ll see” (…) I was immediately very excited to find all these characters.

“I keep creating this character. I find it very difficult for an author to describe a character artificially (…) It takes time for the reader to meet him (…)! And then there, in a book, the only way to really get there is these round trips in time. If this character is acting this way today, it’s because it’s happened before in the past (…) But I’m not afraid of ” Losing the reader, because we make these round trips ourselves in life.
“I would love to write a short story or a very short novel”

“I hope one day I can manage to be more concise. I would love to write a short story or a very short novel where everything is said in 150 pages. I am not capable of that yet. He likes to tell long stories, has many characters, has a universe where I settle in, take time out.” I like to be (…) I don’t have time, we are always in synthesis and efficiency”.
