Join Scandinavia House for a virtual book talk with acclaimed Finnish-Estonian author Sofi Oksanen on her new novel The Dog Park. With moderator Bethanne Patrick, she’ll discuss the writing of the novel, an international bestseller out in translation by Owen Frederick Witesman from Knopf on September 21.

A captivating story of intrigue, betrayal, and murder in the global fertility market from Oksanen, “an international publishing sensation frequently likened to Stieg Larsson” (The Guardian), The Dog Park begins in Helsinki, 2016. Moving seamlessly between modern-day Finland and Ukraine in the early days of its post-Soviet independence, The Dog Park is a keenly observed, dark, and propulsive novel set at the intersection of East and West, centered on a web of exploitation and the commodification of the female body.

Sofi Oksanen brings fearless psychological acuity to this captivating story about a woman unable to escape the memory of her lost child, the ruthless powers that still hunt her, and the lies that could well end up saving her.

This event will take place as a Zoom webinar; please ask questions in the chat or send them in advance to info@amscan.org. Registration is required; please sign up at the link.
