Miina Supinen

Miina Supinen (b. 1976) is a journalist, essayist and author. Her critically acclaimed novels and short stories have a dedicated fan following, and many consider her the funniest, most effervescent female writer in Finland. Nominated for the Helsingin Sanomat Debut Book of the Year Award in 2007, her novel Jelly Control (Liha tottelee kuria, WSOY 2007), is a cult classic. The collection of short stories, Land of the Apatosaurus (Apatosauruksen maa, WSOY 2010), was nominated for the 2010 Runeberg Prize.

Based on Supinen’s radio plays, Violet Jawbone’s Career Guide (Orvokki Leukaluun urakirja, WSOY 2013) was published in the spring of 2013. Ray Girl (Säde, WSOY 2013), is a mystical love story examining death, beauty, love, religion, sexual norms and culture clashes. Her latest book, Jingle Land (Mantelimaa, Tammi 2015), is a darkly comical look at Christmas obsession gone awry.
