Eldbarn/Fire Child (2017)
Lilou & John released their debut novel Eldbarn/Fire Child in September 2017 on the Gothenburg Book Fair. The novel is a dark story about child abuse, trust and revenge and was described by journalist Perra Winberg as “a modern viking tale”.
The publisher Alterna Media/Nya Kulturförlaget runs of the most famous news papers in Sweden, Nya Tider (“New Times”) and John went to their stall at Gothenburg Book Fair in 2016 to hand over the script.
The idea of the novel was to mix history, myth, dysfunctional family patterns and a ghost story together into something new. The poetic language was used to amplify the archaic elements of the main characters.
