WHAT'S ON IN TALLINN this afternoon?

The estonian book launch of Timo Laine's reportage TANKS AND ROACHES: The collapse of the socialist system as seen from the inside (TORAKOITA JA PANSSARIVAUNUJA: Silminnäkijänä hajoavassa neuvostoimperiumissa, Tammi 2014 & ANKID JA TARAKANID: Pealtnägijana lagunevas Nõukogude impeeriumis, Varrak 2018) today at 16:00 hrs in the presence of the Author!

Laine skillfully combines memoir and travelogue with political analysis in this rollicking narrative non-fiction title on his eyewitness trips to the crumbling Soviet imperium. A must-read!

According to Helsingin Sanomat, Finland's largest daily, O is "one of the most important Finnish fiction books of this decade" where "uninhibitedly effortless skill is combined with a cool intelligence, resulting in stunning literary power". Miki Liukkonen's language is said to be "a precise and glorious flight of free spirit". Read more: bit.ly/2za8yvm ⭕⭕⭕
