The Long Dream, by Sari Malkamäki

jalkikasvuI’ve recently translated Pitkä uni (The Long Dream), a short story by Sari Malkamäki from her collection Jälkikasvu (Offspring), for Books from Finland magazine.

The story feels very vivid to me. Among other things, it describes an experience similar to one I once had, when my sister’s phone called me without her permission. I don’t know how common an experience it is, but the story captures exactly the feeling that it gave me at the time.
