Interview with Carina Bergfeldt, Author of A Good Day To Die

05 Jun 2024

What’s the story behind the story? What inspired you to write A Good Day To Die?

Speaking to someone like Jim Brazzil, time seems to pull you into a kind of dance. In his presence, you feel the here and now—the there and then. His stories swirl around the table, and all you can do is join in. You’re ten years old and have just been given a death sentence. You expect to die before your twelfth birthday, but you’re so young and curious about life that what you really want is to live and serve God. You’re locked in a cell. You’re in an execution chamber with your hand on a murderer’s ankle. You’re listening to a confession. The hours we spend together between life and death. Faith and hope. Joy and sorrow. Memories and confessions. I knew it had to be a book.

If you had to pick theme songs for the main characters of A Good Day To Die, what would they be?

Jim’s theme song would be “Stairway To Heaven”
