Production Reading Sample

Tuuve Aro is a freelance writer who was born and grew up in Helsinki. Alongside her work as a writer, she works as a freelance film critic for the Finnish television channel MTV3, where she has also done some film producing.

“My first novel, Karmiina, is a story enriched with black humour, social colour and realistic fantasy about a crippled girl who has grown up until the age of 17 locked away in a dark sauna cellar in the middle of a homely rustling forest. My collection of short stories Sign and other short stories ( Merkki ja muita novelleja) deals with such melancholic themes as loneliness, death and alcoholism, however, as seen through ominous humour, and the fates of most of the characters stir up hope. I have published three other short story collections earlier on."
