The Rabbit Back Literature Society UK Release
Look what came in the mail today.
It’s The Rabbit Back Literature Society, by Pasi Ilmari Jääskeläinen, a freaky, funny novel that I translated for Pushkin Press.
Here are some of the reviews from the Finnish press:
“Jääskeläinen’s novel is situated in our reality, but it’s a reality that is warping. You could say that there’s a mysterious substance seeping from some secret place into the world we know… Jääskeläinen’s distinct authorial voice and rich, personal writing style make the book an unusually enjoyable read… There is nothing flat or ordinary in his prose.” – Savon Sanomat
“…an idyllic and slightly chilling world that you won’t want to leave. Rarely in a novel is literature so well-loved… After reading it, I felt like writing.” – Aamulehti
“The Rabbit Back Literature Society progresses like a detective novel, but ends up being a book about the love of writing, and the mystery of reality.” – Helsingin Sanomat
It’s coming out in the UK on November 21st, and in the US next May. Available for pre-order through all your favorite vendors or at your local bookstore.
