Seven Stories Press Acquires Memoir by Stieg Larsson’s Partner

Eva Gabrielsson spent 30 years as novelist Stieg Larsson‘s life partner. Now Seven Stories Press has acquired the North American rights to her memoir about their lives together. Linda Coverdale will translate.

Here’s more from the release: “Gabrielsson describes their activism and deep political passion, their struggle to keep Stieg’s magazine Expo going, their early lives, as well as the seemingly mundane details that make a life: their love of coffee and Stockholm cafes, etc. … The book also includes never-before-seen photographs and letters.”

The book is currently untitled. While Swedish, French, and Norwegian editions will arrive in January 2011, the English market will have to wait until June 2011. In a 2009 interview with Publishing Perspectives, Gabrielsson mentioned a memoir tentatively titled The Year After Stieg.
