Så vill ni ha ett nytt koncept för festen varsågoda:

Charles Dickens: Dombey & Son (Madeira) Stephen King: The Shining (Gin) J. D. Salinger: Räddaren i nöden (Rom) Kingsley Amis: Lyckliga Jim (Metanol) Det lär komma fler filmer för den törstige.

    1. Hello Kajsa, yes, you are quite right! I didn’t plan the order too much as I was keen to make sure I just got on with it but I have some video plans for Iris Murdoch, Helen Fielding, Lynne Reid Banks and more that I am still finalising. The next video will be a woman I promise! I would love to research more authors from other countries as well so if you have any recommendations for Swedish writers, Scandinavian and Nordic writers in general, or any non-British and non-American then please let me know! If you have any ideas please feel free to email me at or connect with me on mu social media sites ( It’s just a ‘for fun’ project but I want to do the best I can. Have a great weekend 🙂

  1. Thank you very much for sharing Peter 🙂 It is a fun side project for me that I hope people will find interesting… and of course, enjoy making the drinks at home 😉 I have a few projects that are taking a bit of time to get going so sorry there are not more videos and that they are only once a month, I will get more out soon. Have a great weekend!
