The Limit, by Riikka Pulkkinen: UK and US Release

I believe I mentioned in a previous post that Riikka Pulkkinen’s wonderful first novel The Limit was published last month by Scribe Publications in Australia. I’m happy to learn that the novel will be available in the U.S. and U.K. in September. It’s available now for pre-order in the U.S. on Amazon.

I translated this book, and am quite fond of it. The cover might make it look like a rollicking story of adventurous girlhood, fun days at the lake, or something like that. It actually deals with rather dire and serious issues, and there are no scenes of summer at the lake. More of a frozen and flooding rivers kind of story. But it does have a warm heart. According to the Sydney Morning HeraldThe Limit is “a quiet, mature novel” that “explores the limits of people’s control over their own actions and circumstances, and the boundaries of acceptable behaviour.”
