The Estonian rights to Johanna Venho’s enchanting novel THE AUTUMN BOOK (Syyskirja, @wsoykirjat 2021) have just been acquired by publisher Varrak. Congratulations! The book has been a steady bestseller ever since its publication in September and it is one of the most sought after titles in libraries as well.
“I am a big fan of Tove Jansson. THE AUTUMN BOOK tells of Tove’s last days on Klovharu Island. The book aspires to convey melancholy, an atmosphere of departure and farewell. It is a wonderful reflection on artistry. Johanna Venho is also a poet, and one can tell. The language is beautiful and meticulous.”
