Slovak rights to WHEN GRANDFATHER SKIED TO FINLAND (Kun isoisä Suomeen hiihti, WSOY 1969) by Daniel Katz sold to publisher Slovart! The work will be translated by Zuzana Drábeková. This will be the 15th translation for this classic!
This hysterically funny history of a Jewish family making its way across Finland and Russia rides roughshod over history, relating one crazy incident after another. Katz is one of the cosmopolitans of Finnish prose – a humorist who entertains us with his wild imagination and sense of the absurd. Katz is also a humanist, who gently mocks the weaknesses of people and society.
