De senaste två åren har jag gett ut två små historier som var viktiga för mig att få skriva men som jag egentligen inte hade tänkt skulle bli böcker. Min familjs och mina intäkter från försäljningen av dem går till forskning och utbildning inom områden vi känner starkt för. Med anledning av det har vi idag satt in 178 000 kronor till Hjärnfonden, som kommer från försäljningen av "Och varje morgon blir vägen hem längre och längre". (Den har nu totalt dragit in 347 000 kronor, till förmån för forskning kring hjärnans sjukdomar.) Vi har även donerat 227 000 kronor, min familjs och min del av intäkterna för "Ditt livs affär", till initiativ inom barncancerforskning och cancerrehabilitering. Vi vill rikta ett varmt och uppriktigt tack till alla som tagit sig tiden att läsa eller lyssna på de här små historierna. Båda böckerna finns givetvis fortfarande till försäljning, vår del av intäkterna går även fortsättningsvis till välgörande ändamål. Tack för uppmärksamheten.

My wife and I celebrated one of our wedding anniversaries yesterday (we have one in June and one in August but, as it turns out, none in July when I made dinner reservations in the first place but let's not get caught up in details). She took me to her favourite restaurant and I wore a suit and shoes with shoe laces and everything and all the food was really pretty and I had three glasses of wine and the waiters said lovely things to me like "no, that's...alright" and "no, no, I think your volume of voice is perfectly fine" and when I had another glass of wine they pretended it wasn't me but that maybe the building was leaning a little. This was the last picture of my wife's dessert. That's my hand moving in for the kill. It was ice cream and peaches and butter and a deep fried cloud and small pieces of unicorn sprinkled on top. When we left the restaurant the head chef was standing by the door and when we came out into the street my wife patted me gently on the shoulder and said "I understand you were very emotional about his dessert, hunny, but I think it was good that you didn't hug him, I think you read his signals correctly". So all in all, it was a great night. Onto next year!

Most of the day I'm pretending to be really sad because the waiting room at the funeral parlour a block from our house has really good air condition.

Made a note for this date next year, because yesterday I took my wife out to a very nice dinner because it was our wedding anniversary. But as it turns out, it wasn’t. In my defense, we have two anniversaries because we got married twice (partly because we had one Persian and one Swedish ceremony and partly because I’d read that half of all marriages end in divorce so I figured two would improve our odds) so I wasn’t late I was EARLY...and ALSO in my defense I’m sure I’m going to forget some ACTUAL thing at one point or another and then this dinner can be a spare parts dinner, that we can replace the one we miss with. Now that’s my story and I’m sticking to it. My wife of course had to tell me “you know what? This was all really great until you said ‘happy anniversary!’ because until then you just looked like you wanted to surprise your wife with a nice dinner because she deserves that EVERY day, you know?”. But 11 years into this relationship I’m still learning the details of it.

Somewhere around last week, at the end of my US book tour, my latest novel “Us against you” reached the New York Times bestseller list. It’s the fifth of my books to be on that list in the last three years. It was a really special moment to me, but it also gave me a reason to reflect a little. Last winter I had a bit of a crash after dealing with a lot of stress related health issues for a pretty long time, I’ve mentioned it in bits and pieces here and there, but during this tour I ended up talking more about anxiety and depression than I had planned. I was asked a couple of times to write some of that down, and when my family and I came to Los Angeles at the end of the tour I decided to give it a try. It’s a long text and it’s not in any way written in perfect English, but it is what it is, and if anyone wants to read it it's on my blog at fredrikbackman.com now. That’s all. Thanks. /// Jag har skrivit en ganska lång text om ångest och press. Den finns på min blogg på fredrikbackman.com och är skriven på engelska (i långa stycken säkerligen inte jättebra engelska, men jag jobbar på det).

It was also weird and overwhelming. 7 cities and 3 festivals and a couple of thousand people who showed up to hear me talk about not really knowing what the hell I'm doing most of the time. It's a very strange experience. I have a lot of anxiety issues about these tours, I don't handle attention well. It gets too big for me. Too real. If my wife and our kids hadn't agreed to come along this time I would have been too scared to go alone, to be honest. I've been nervous and emotional, proud and frightened. But we did alright. My wife had my back and our kids drove me crazy, just as always. They give me purpose. We played in parks in Chicago and Seattle and we went swimming in San Francisco and San Diego. We saw sea lions and nine million dogs. We had ice cream in four different states. It was really quite something. But I look forward to going back to my office now. Playing with the kids in our own backyard. Being normal, staying weird. Flying home. Thanks to everyone involved.

The one on the left has a birthday today. Smart and funny, brave and kind, dances like an angel and drinks like a sailor. Hot mama and cool cat. I never loved anyone before she turned my whole world over. I never knew what that was like. She's stubborn as hell, it gets her into some fights but it also gets her out of all of them. Because she never gives up on people. Ever. Not even when we deserve it. Noone impresses me more, astonish me so, or makes me laugh harder. She's a loving daughter, loyal sister, crazy aunt, tiger mom and an absolutely fantastic wife. A strong and true friend. She holds this whole family together while having two jobs: First she runs her own career, and then she runs our company. When I couldn't cope with the pressure, she took over everything. She handles publishers, agents, lawyers, accountants and movie people. She's the administrator, negotiator and decision maker. The CEO of frikkin everything. I don't know how she does it, where it comes from, what I ever did to earn it. I'm not as tough as her. She knows that, deep down. So when I got overwhelmed with anxiety and panic about going on another book tour alone, she packed some more bags and said "alright, then it's a family thing from now on". She's my castle. Whenever I'm with her I'm safe. I make a lot of jokes, but I would never be where I am without her, we came here together. There's no team like her team. She lifts me up when I need it, keeps me grounded when I deserve it. Makes inappropriate jokes when I least expect it. And today is her day. So I'm getting her drunk.

Got left behind in the dunes. Don't know what I'm doing. Have no idea where I am. Starting to feel the expression "ride or die" is a rather rhetorical question. Got left behind in the dunes.

I have no idea what's going on, but apparently it's my fault we didn't have enough rocks to swap for planks or whatever so we could fix the stupid hangbridge so we could escape the stupid trolls and now we have to trade all our stupid silver for stupid something to do whatever with the thing at the place before we fall into the boiling stupid and stupid die.

My wife made a cake. She also made threats. Most of them were about what would happen to me if I ate the cake before the guests arrived. I feel we have some trust issues.
