A struggling and t-so-young advertising creative, Anakin Carver meets Natasha von Ottmann, an up and coming actress working on his new campaign, and accidentally makes her famous. Now romantically involved with a celebrity, Carver finds himself connected into the landscape of popular media and entertainment; a labyrinth of mistrust, petty politics and desperate grasps for power. As he becomes instrumental in the struggle for cultural dominance, Natasha must choose between fame and idealism. Everything Is True. Nothing Is Permitted. In a time of unrest and social change, Anakin Carver may become one of the most influential figures never kwn. As civilization moves toward both utopia and ruin, all it may need is a subtle push in either direction. Written in an exciting new format of thirteen episodes, rather than traditional chapters, STOCKHOLM is designed to be enjoyed like a full season of a cable television series. Each episode satirizes our culture's obsessions with social connection, class conflict, the evolving role of celebrity, the reaches of government and how one man's choices can either help enlighten or destroy our way of life.
Kian Kaul (1976-) born in Santa Barbara, California, has spent the last decade working in Los Angeles as a creative. An adopter of the philosophy of the style of no style, he has found himself involved in music, new media, television, film and now literature. He considers himself an expert in nothing and aspires to know all. His first foray into long-form fiction produced Stockholm, originally planned as a sitcom, inexplicably became his debut novel. A follow-up is currently in the works.
