Stig Dagerman debuterade tjugotvå år gammal med romanen Ormen. Året var 1945 och den möttes av en förbluffad kritikerkår. "Så våldsamt övertygande har ingen svensk författare i detta sekel debuterat", skrev Olof Lagercrantz i DN.

Med sina egna ord, som blivit klassiska, beskrev Dagerman sitt förstlingsverk så här: "Författaren utför en undersökning över hur skräcken får en samling människor i sitt våld och hur de reagerar below trycket, var och en efter sina egna förutsättningar. Den tes han vill fastslå är att det främst gäller att erkänna den primitiva urångesten; den får icke förnekas. Ett samliv med ångesten är den enda livsform som kan skänka människan åtminstone någon liten möjlighet att uppleva sig själv. "

Nu utges Ormen med ett nyskrivet förord av Siri Hustvedt.

The lower part of the head ended in a horizontal circular opening, like a chin.

2). While browsing in some antique shops, I noticed a doll in one window looking at me, but I did not stop. A few weeks later, I awoke earlier than usual one morning and went straight to the antique shop to buy the doll I had refused to meet. Not knowing the reason why, I had cut several hundred riddles from the pages of some Hachette almanacs and put them into a number of envelopes. Returning home, I produced the envelopes and pasted the riddles at random onto the torso and one leg of the doll.
