Description Tage Danielsson’s novel Mannen som slutade röka: en psykologisk thriller (The Man Who Quit Smoking: A Psychological Thriller) is a fictional diary of an executive director named Dante Alighieri. Riddled with various scribbles, doodles, and side comments, the work offers a wide range of possibilities for exploring the functions of these visual elements. This article explores how the integrated text and pictorial expressions function within the context of the stylized diary, and on what scale it realizes the connection between the conventional word and the seemingly automatic, manic, cyclical scribbling and writing.
