Fantastic interview! Extremely inspiring...Thanks!


David — So glad you enjoyed it, and thanks for your ping about it on Twitter. Very nice to "meet" you. :)

Lola Rogers

Thanks for this interesting interview. I am the lucky translator who has been given a grant to produce an English excerpt from Viimeiset viestit, which I hope to complete by the end of August. As soon as I heard about the book I was intrigued, and after speaking with the publisher about it, I immediately applied for a grant to support translating an excerpt.

Having just started to read the novel, I can tell you that the format works wonderfully to create a sense of acute curiosity, of peering through cracks into private mysteries.


Hi Lola — Great to "meet" you! Your new venture sounds very exciting, and many of us are looking forward to the English translation. Many thanks. :)


I am interested in the English translation of "The Last Messages" by Hannu Luntiala. (Review in Foreign Policy issue July/August 2007.) My interest includes (1) text message format, (2) attitude - philosophy expressed, and (3) my son, Ted Shelton's , high esteem for the Finnish people.

I've also linked to your interviews with Hannu in the accompanying post (which is perhaps a better link to start with):
