An atmospheric love story with a twist by the author of The Rabbit Back Literature Society

In a small hillside town, Olli Suominen - publisher and discontented husband - is constantly losing umbrellas. He has also joined a film club. And Greta, an old flame, has added him on Facebook.

As his life becomes more and more entangled with Greta's, and his wife and son are dragged into the aftermath of this teenage romance, Olli is forced to make a choice. But does he really want to know what the secret passages are? Can he be sure that Greta is who she seems to be? And what actually happened on that summer's day long ago?

Tense, atmospheric and often very funny, Secret Passages in a Hillside Town is a magical Finnish story from the author of the acclaimed The Rabbit Back Literature Society.

Om forfatteren

Pasi Ilmari Jääskeläinen is Finland's best kept literary secret. In the early '70s, when he was five, Pasi lived in a block of flats by an old cemetery and believed in vampires. In the early '80s he still had vampire dreams and fell in love with Jeanne Moreau in Truffaut's Jules et Jim. Ten years later Pasi wrote his first short stories.
He won the writing competition for science fiction and fantasy stories four times, and then decided to become a writer. Now he is an author, but he is also a teacher of Finnish language and literature in a secondary school and the father of three sons. He hasn't stopped loving vampires, Jeanne Moreau or classic films. The Rabbit Back Literature Society is his first book to be published in English.
