L. Moon – The Secret File
06.08 - 29.08.2021
Galleri Toll presents a collaboration with the publishing house Publishing Publishing Nordic (represented by Jo Mikkel Sjaastad Huse), who in turn present the first novel written by lauded ghost writer L. Moon under their own name.
The Secret File
An intriguing story about a mysterious yellow concrete building by Central Park, an elongated shape traveling through space, a series of inexplicable disappearances, dreams of birds and a gruesome murder.
We follow Special Agent Cat, Dr. Kale, the poet Bell, Lynx the medical student, Associate Executive Assistant Director Crane and Detective Light – ever deeper into the mysteries of a global conspiracy, possibly even the end of days.
The commercial takeover of the gallery space lasts from 6. of August, at 18:00 to the 29. of August, and is accessible to view throughout the opening hours of Ropsten T-bana station.
The book will also be for sale in numerous locations throughout the city, as well as during the opening.
A reading will also take place during the opening at 18:30.
Sadly, because of corona virus restrictions, L. Moon themselves will not be joining us for the launch, but our Oslo based employee Jo Mikkel Sjaastad Huse will do their best to present the novel to an eager Scandinavian audience on behalf of both L. Moon and Publishing Publishing Nordic.
After a long career as a ghost writer, L. Moon is now publishing The Secret File under their own name. They are widely known in the industry for their extensive work in TV and cinema, and for writing hugely successful books for celebrities.
In The Secret File, L. Moon showcases their talent for writing intricate and nerve-wrecking detective novels, with an intriguing plot and unexpected twists.

«The bird creature watched in awe, and nurtured life from a distance, so as to not damage or impact it, its ways of being. Such intricate, fragile beauty, such violence and ruthlessness, a constant state of becoming, increasing, changing. Waiting, it supposed, for a point of meaningful change, for a sign.»
