As you’ve probably noticed, Angelina Jolie has written about her BRCA1 breast cancer gene. A new friend of mine, Lizzie Stark, has faced the same choices and blogs about her work on a book on the topic that you should absolutely check out. I had the pleasure of playing a chamber role-playing game she designed on the topic and wrote about it a while back here (Swedish). The game itself is in English and downloadable on Lizzie’s blog.
Other recent Fokus columns of mine have been about contemporary ghost stories, the low cost of prevention, meat-eating in a time of environmental crisis, the Egyptian tourism industry in a time of unrest, Zombie Ibsen, and how long ago the 20th century already is. (All in Swedish).
