The Fifty Year Sword is the much awaited successor to Danielewski’s unconventionel debut novel House of Leaves, a complex and experimental horror story packed with anagrams, puzzles, teasing typography and hidden meanings. The event coincided with the worldwide launch of this book The Fifty Year Sword (Het Vijftig Jaars Zwaard), a wicked and witty ghost story set during a Halloween party on a ranch in Texas.

Pieter Steinz, literary critic for NRC Handelsblad, moderated the evening.
