About the book:

An award-winning, exciting and passionate book about some of the bravest and most inspiring women throughout history, such as Karen Blixen, Yayoi Kusama, Isabella Bird. Over 20 000 copies have been printed in Finland thus far.

The Women I Think About at Night is both fiction and nonfiction. Crossing the distance between those two is a journey that calls for good preparation and great caution. Kankimäki does it victoriously.”
– Lauri Jäntti Award Jury

”Kankimäki doesn’t pursue eternal happiness or positivity. The book is more about conquering your own fears if – and especially when – they are standing between you and your dreams.”
– Helsingin Sanomat newspaper
