Secret Passages in a Hillside Town: autumn 2017

Pushkin Press has acquired the latest novel by ”one of Finland’s best kept secrets”, Pasi Ilmari Jääskeläinen.

Adam Freudenheim acquired world English rights from Rita Karlsson at the Kontext Agency. Pushkin plans to publish in autumn 2017.

Secret Passages in a Hillside Town is the working title of the book.

(The Bookseller)

So, my first novel has found many new readers from all over the world since it was published in English (and several other languages), and now another one of my books has been sold to Pushkin Press. (However, unlike that bulletin says, it’s not my latest novel – it’s my second novel, and I have written three novels and one collection of short stories so far.)

Pushkin Press is not the first buyer of this second novel of mine – my Czech publisher, Paseka, had already bought the Czech rights a couple of months earlier.
