It’s the annual Book Fair in Gothenburg. Josefina works for the respected book publisher, Gabriel´s, and tonight they are hosting an exclusive cocktail party with a theme: "Arabian love". Richard Steel, an older and very successful author is also at the Fair. He is Josefina’s favourite author. But she is his publisher, and she must be professional. A cocktail party with turbans, gold and drinks, and Richard is irresistible; a genie who is there to make Josefina’s wishes come true. They move closer and closer to each other and they have a magic connection. He is forbidden. But it doesn’t matter. Or maybe it’s part of the attraction?"The Publisher" is a novella about instant desire, a desire as powerful as magic, and a Book Fair that offers something extraordinary.
