Product Details

Praise

“Finnish novelist Jääskeläinen deftly channels the tropes of the big screen – from saturated colors and chiaroscuro to stolen lines and melodramatic scenes, he stages the glittering affair doomed by the secrets of that fateful summer, the mystery of Karri’s disappearance, and the truth about what happened in the secret tunnels. A beguiling, unexpected blend of whimsical romance and suspenseful noir.” — Kirkus Reviews

“This mysterious, idiosyncratic tale exerts an unexpected pull… more than a little cinematic.” – Mail on Sunday

“Reality, fantasy worlds, and references to the Famous Five blend into one intoxicating vision… Beautiful, absorbing, and chilling literature.”Helsingin Sanomat

“The kind of novel that surprises you with its strangeness long after you think that every possible imaginative alley has been explored.” Kannesta kanteen

“Delightful, magical, inventive.” — The National (UAE)

‘Gloriously strange, witty and disturbing… A tremendous, haunting book, full of bitter pain and starry-eyed wonder.’ – SFX (5 star ‘SFX Loves’ lead review for December)

“Randomly funny, ultimately quite dark, very very clever Secret Passages in a Hillside Town is a literary delight, a hidden gem and comes highly recommended from me.” – Liz Loves Books (blog)

“Strange and beguiling, luring its readers in with quirkiness and charm… highly compelling.” – Glasgow Herald

“I really like this book… Another gem from Pushkin Press, this could be a Man Booker…” — Winston’s Dad (blog)


‘Praise for The Rabbit Back Literature Society: ‘Unexpected, thrilling and absurd’ Sunday Telegraph; ‘Unnerving, enigmatic’ FT; ‘Witty’ Observer; ‘You’ll love it’ Harper’s Bazaar; ‘Thrilling’ Shortlist
