I have to publicly thank the amazing people at @idlewildnyc the best bookstore in NYC! In the thousands of books I have purchased from the store there had to be a special place for this one. This is literally why I still prefer to go a #bookstore instead of buying books online. #serendipity I knew nothing of this book or #eevaliisamanner and after reading her I’m just mesmerized. Here we have a seemingly simple #story of a weird and misunderstood girl in a small town in #finland Instead of following what society imposes upon her, she decides to create her own world: a #magical one full of #nature and other outcasts. Ultimately it’s a very #intimate #philosophical and #hopefulstory very much in the vein of her contemporary and compatriot Tove Jansson. #highlyrecommended#girlonheavenspier @dalkeyarchive#vyborg #finnishliterature #comingofage#bildungsroman #younggirl#tyttotaivaanlaiturilla #viipuri #выборг
