Actually, this is the second manifestation of this particular story. He first wrote this story under the title Landscapes Within, his second novel, in 1981. Then he rewrote it as Dangerous Love in the 1990s after he had won the Booker Prize. He said after the first version he continued to feel haunted by the story, by the feeling that the book wasn’t complete. And I think he actually manages to complete the story with this book.
