This is so COOL... America is bowing to Miki Liukkonen. An English excerpt from Liukkonen's ingenious, dazzling novel O (O, WSOY 2017) will be published in the BEST EUROPEAN FICTION 2019 anthology by Dalkey Archive Press. The translation is by Douglas Robinson. A wealth of other publishers are considering the English rights of the full-length novel, right now! ⭕⭕⭕

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 ⭕⭕⭕

Bravo! Last night’s story concert of Timo Parvela's “Ella and Friends in a Concert” at the Helsinki Music Hall was pure joy! The beautiful music by Composer Iiro Rantala was performed to perfection by the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra, led by Conductor Jaakko Kuusela. The narration of the story was of course by Timo Parvela himself, with the lovely and graceful Lotta Kuusisto as the delightful Ella. And the talented Paavo Kerosuo as Teacher had the audience in stitches! Now we know: Teacher’s pointer IS longer than the composers tiny stick!
