New Finnish Writing in English

WWB_Finland_Aug2014_550_393Words Without Borders, the online journal of literature in English translation, has published an issue devoted to contemporary Finnish literature, featuring interesting recent works by thirteen Finnish authors, including translations by myself and fellow FELT members Emily Jeremiah and Owen Witesman.

I have three pieces in the issue. One is an excerpt from my translation of Sofi Oksanen’s new novel When the Doves Disappeared, the third book in her planned Estonia-Finland quartet. When the Doves Disappeared is scheduled for publication in the US in 2015.

There is also a short story by one of my favorite Finnish authors, Daniel Katz, and one by the delightful Pasi Ilmari Jääskeläinen, author of The Rabbit Back Literature Society.

I highly recommend them.
