Finland was guest-of-honour at the 2014 Frankfurt Book Fair, and Peter Owen has two of its finest contemporary fiction writers on its list. One of these, Johanna Sinisalo was in attendance and caught up with Editorial Director Antonia Owen where they discussed her latest novel – the third to be published by Peter Owen – The Blood of Angels, a stunning work of literary fantasy that explores the effects of the global disappearance of bees. It is already garnering tremendous international interest and reviews. Our other Finnish author is Arto Paasilinna, who wrote The Year of the Hare, a wonderful ecological fable about a burnt-out journalist who spends a year travelling around the wilderness with an injured hare he encounters on a country road.
