We are thrilled to announce that Wisdom Tree Publishers have acquired the English language rights in India for A Delicate Shade Of Pink (Häivähdys punaista, Tammi 2006), written by Dr. Erkki Tuomioja, the Minister for Foreign Affairs of Finland, for publication in May 2013.
Dr. Erkki Tuomioja’s historical biography about the lives of Hella Wuolijoki and Salme Dutt in service of revolution promotes the European collectiveness, the influences and themes of those days that still underline much of the European existence, culture and politics, guiding the future too. This twinned biography follows the two wilful sisters and their many partners and spouses in the world of international politics, power and trade. The book has strong connections to the UK, Germany, Belgium and Sweden. Especially Hella Wuolijoki’s life shows the European way of crossing the borders both socially, culturally and politically, and also for the sake of business – something that the EU also brings to the fore. It is important to understand the past to be able to understand the future.
