J.J. Abrams discussed some bits and pieces regarding his upcoming book simply titled S. in this New York Times interview. The book will be released on Tuesday October 29, 2013.
“There is the novel itself (“Ship of Theseus”), which stands alone as its own story, and then there are the notes in the margins: a conversation and investigation and mystery and love story between two people, which is both connected to and separate from the central text. Then, there is the editor of the book, who appears in an introduction and in footnotes. So there were many characters and points of view to balance. It felt less like film or TV, and more like concocting something insane and very special.”
The Hollywood writer, director and producer, and author was inspired by Chris Ware’s work. “His graphic novels have the emotional wallop of a Philip Roth or Thomas Pynchon.”
