(ANSA) – PORDENONE, 17 SEPTEMBER – “I wake up every day scared at the idea of disappointing my readers”. To say it is not just any writer but Jeffery Deaver, a novelist who has sold over fifty million copies worldwide. The Illinois author confessed this by speaking to Pordenonelegge to present his latest work, “The Black Map” (Rizzoli).
“I work very hard and with great attention, never resting on my laurels, but I am still afraid that I will stumble and that what I write readers will no longer like. I am afraid of writing something too complex, or not complex enough; I am afraid that Twists with which I love to pepper my narratives fail, or that my characters become clichés. It’s my biggest concern: I’m so lucky to be able to tell stories for work that I don’t want to miss this opportunity. “
“I really believe that Putin can be ascribed to the category of super villains”. Thus the novelist Jeffery Deaver, who has outlined dozens of antagonists, described the Russian president. “I am just a normal person who reads the news but I suspect that, despite the dark side, Putin is not crazy. On the contrary, I believe that if he is given the opportunity to step back without losing face he will try to take it. I imagine something like ‘We have convinced the inhabitants of Donbass, now we can retire.’ (ANSA).
