Story of divorce, alcoholism, and attempts to recover. Faith, hope, love… and rage! EU Literature Prize nominee!

Tuuli is a struggling translator and a mother of Luna, a four-year-old girl. When Tuuli leaves her heavily drinking husband Ilja, the lives of three people change for good.

Rage is a gripping story of divorce, alcoholism, and attempts to recover. It’s also a novel about motherhood, commitment, relationships, and how people and literature are both just as tricky to translate. Three narrators paint a picture of one broken family, and one fragile lizard who seems to keep everything together.
