The buzz over the book at the Helsinki Book Fair was pretty exciting. It was not just that it was a novel about Pentti Saarikoski; it was also that the novel had been written by an American, who was there and spoke fluent Finnish. I was interviewed for every major Finnish daily, including the Helsinki student paper, where Pentti first made a name for himself as the author of the "Nose" column. Here are some of the articles that resulted:
