The Rabbit Back Literature Society

by Pasi Ilmari Jääskeläinen

The Rabbit Back Literature Society is an exciting multi-layered mystery novel in the same spirits of Mikhail BulgakovPeter Høeg and Gabriel Garcia Marquez.

Laura Lumikko’s name is known to everyone. She is a beloved writer who has written those Creatureville books that we all read as children.

Three decades ago the author Laura Lumikko promised to find ten talented children among the children of her hometown and train them to be writers. She only found nine.

These successful writers comprise a society with rules of its own and a place in the canon of the Finnish literature. Now, after years of waiting, the tenth member finally joins The Society, and The Game, one of the Society’s best kept secrets, begins again.

However, at her winter-time party something happens that startles people: it seems that no one has really known Laura Lumikko. The authors will be confronted by the past they’ve already buried once – literally...

Pasi Ilmari Jääskeläinen is Finnish and has written three novels – The Rabbit Back Literature Society, The Cinematic Life – a novel and Souls wander in the Rain.

The Rabbit Back Literature Society is an intriguing debut that has startled a whole lot of readers – as a result, film rights have been sold to a Finnish film producer. There will be a motion picture and a TV series of 6 episodes based on the book, the script being currently written by the acclaimed author, previously awarded with the prestigious Finlandia Award, Johanna Sinisalo.

Everyone reading Paul Auster will definitely enjoy this author, bringing a touch of Nordic noir into a genre that it’s becoming more and more popular, the crossover one.
