Czech rights to Eeva Kilpi’s marvellous novel Tamara (WSOY 1972) sold to Malá Skála!

Tamara is an experimental erotic novel that depicts the relationship between a sexually active woman and a handicapped man. In Tamara, as in many of Kilpi’s works, the central character is a strong, independent woman. With this first Finnish erotic novel Eeva Kilpi attacks (and not without humour), puritanism, hypocrisy and prejudice, everything that that makes life painful and makes us feel guilty and claims for women the right to emotions and to sexuality.

Hanna Weselius won the Torch-Bearer Award earlier this year with her magnificent and praised novel Alma! This is how author Antti Tuomainen, Head of the jury put it:
“It shows, in various different ways, what life is like today, what it is like to be a woman, what it is like to be a person and what kind of world we live in. Alma! has something completely unique that captured me and drew me in. I think it has to do with the writer’s exceptionally strong voice”.
