For the 40th Second-Hand Book Factory, Charles Adrian is joined by writer, musician and ex-footballer Martin Bengtsson, aka Waldemaar. They discuss minimalist writing, the mythologising of friends and a letter novel that is not exactly a novel.
Warning: this interview was conducted over Skype and there is occasional distortion due to a bad connection.
