”Kirjallisuuden keinovarat solmiutuvat Lindstedtin käsissä omalakiseksi taideteokseksi, jonka toteutusta voi ihailla ja todistusta maailmastamme monesti kavahtaa.”

– Antti Majander, Helsingin Sanomat

”Yhteiskuntakriittinen ja feministinen katse on sisäänrakennettu tämän fantasian ankaraan realismiin, eivätkä Lindstedtin kuvaukset inhimillisistä tragedioista ja vallankäytön mekanismeista todellakaan ole hyvänyönsatuja.”

– Pohjoismaiden neuvoston kirjallisuuspalkintoraati

It’s raining and thundering! And here’s the Estonian translation of sentences and words from Niki de Saint Phalle’s artwork ”My Men” (1994), written by Natalia as one of the exercises she performs (fictional level), ie. handwritten by me by Rotring Tikky Graphic Pigment Ink 0.7 (actual level).
.
.
”Minu sõber Natalia” is translated by Kadri Jaanits and it will be published on August by Rahva Raamat.

Voilà, a #videoad for next Tuesday’s online event around ”My Friend Natalia”. It will be me and @dearbookmaven and talk, talk, talk on literature.
.
.
A must admit I feel a bit (A LOT!) embarrassed with the slogan ”the Rock Star of Finnish Literature”. So please let me tell where it comes from. When ”Natalia” came out in Finland, critic Nina Lehtinen from @aamulehti wrote that she thought of me as ”a rockstar in the art of the novel” (15.3.2019). This took a spark of inspiration in marketing. Promo materials were translated, publishers abroad adopted the slighly converted phrase. And here we are.
.

Enough for explanations! Register here for the virtual event ➡️ eventbrite.com ➡️ an evening with Laura Lindstedt ➡️ May 25 at 5pm (EDT) / Midnight (EEST).

I just LOVE the #ad for Oneiron made by my Polish publisher @wydawnictwo_poznanskie in their @seriaskandynawska!
.
.
Polish Oneiron has also had great reviews. Translator Sebastian Musielak has kindly picked some extracts and translated them into English.
.
.
”The novel about small, almost transparent moments and decisions that made our lives. […] Although Lindstedt is playing with imagination, building a new, post-death world, I get the feeling that what she wants really to write about is the way we live.”
– Sylwia Chutnik, writer
.
.
”We can debate on whether „Oneiron” is about the collective memory of one sex, or if it is the history of memory stigmatisation by means of who we’ve been and what we’ve experienced as a certain sex. One thing is for sure: Lindstedt’s womanhood is power and mystery.”
– Jarek Czechowicz, independent literary blogger
.
.
”The thing is, what causes the women’s death, and how they died. Here the main part plays the male power, which manifests itself in different ways […] but Lindstedt does not give us the accusatory vision of the world as seen by the victims. Her heroines are strong, determined to fight for themselves and their goals. With no regrets.”
– Literary critic Maciej Kijko
