Karmiina

Karmiina

 
A wild but simultaneously tender novel about what a life lived in a modern society has done to us

 

Karmiina is a novel about a girl who grew up in a dark cellar but grew to her full stature once she escaped from there. It is an alternative heroic tale where the heroes’ roles are taken up by alternative heroes. It is a grotesque yet tender, absurd yet sane, fast-paced yet warm novel about what a youth spent in an earth cellar does to a human being. And what a life lived in a modern society has done to all the rest of us.
