7 posts | 5 read | 8 to read
An atmospheric love story with a twist by the author of The Rabbit Back Literature Society In a small hillside town, Olli Suominen - publisher and discontented husband - is constantly losing umbrellas. He has also joined a film club. And Greta, an old flame, has added him on Facebook. As his life becomes more and more entangled with Greta's, and his wife and son are dragged into the aftermath of this teenage romance, Olli is forced to make a choice. But does he really want to know what the secret passages are? Can he be sure that Greta is who she seems to be? And what actually happened on that summer's day long ago? Tense, atmospheric and often very funny, Secret Passages in a Hillside Town is a magical Finnish story from the author of the acclaimed The Rabbit Back Literature Society. Pasi Ilmari Jääskeläinen, born in 1966, is one of Finland's best-kept secrets. A novelist and short-story writer, he is well known for his fantasy and sci-fi narratives and has twice won the Kuvastaja Fantasy Prize given by Finland's Tolkien Society and four times won the Atorox Award for Fantasy. He teaches Finnish language and literature and is the father of three sons. Pushkin Press also publishes The Rabbit Back Literature Society.

Wow. I don‘t usually go for magical realism, but the writing and translation are excellent, as they were in his pre joys book I read (tagged below).
