Johanna Sinisalo’s critically acclaimed The Core of the Sun sold to Latvia!

We are happy to announce that Johanna Sinisalo’s The Core of the Sun has been sold to Latvia to Petergailis Publishers. The rights are now sold in 5 territories! This story of ”sex, drugs and bureaucracy” was recently published in France and U.S. to great reviews:

”The novel builds a fascinating story centered on gender politics.” The Washington Post

”It’s that odd juxtaposition of the purely sensual with the satirically absurd that helps make The Core of the Sun the most original, unsettling, and weirdly comic dystopia that I’ve seen in some years.” – Locus Magazine

The novel is a captivating and witty speculative satire of a Handmaid’s Tale–esque welfare state, called the Eusistocratic Republic of Finland, where women are either breeders or outcasts, addicts chase the elusive high of super-hot chili peppers, and one woman is searching for her missing sister.
