WE OFTEN talked about that trip as if it had been a magical moment. In the summer of 2004, after he’d delivered the three Millennium volumes to the publisher, we made heaps of plans for the future. We used to imagine—among other things, and I’ll say more about this later—”our little writing cottage,” which we wanted to build on an island. Stieg and I would make drawings of it, each off on our own, and then compare our sketches, sitting side by side on our kokssoffa, which is a wooden settee with an upholstered seat.
One day we were asked to drum up some money for the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia, and since we had to support their politics, I wanted to know what they were. ” Well, Stieg and I abandoned that fund-raising effort and left the Vietnamese solidarity movement. I then gravitated toward “the traitors”: that’s what the Maoists called the Trotskyites, whose system authorized multi-partyism (which I found more democratic), whereas the Maoists were a dictatorship. Stieg decided to stick with the latter, and throughout the year that followed, before we’d moved in together, we fought violently over the best way to bring happiness to the world proletariat.
