A Year In South Karelia

ByMichael Child

A Year in South Karelia hilariously chronicles the real life of a newcomer living in a foreign land. The result is a hilarious and informative account of a new life in a faraway place. The author uses a charming combination of naivety and knowledge to document his first reactions and deeper understanding of common and oddly unique cultural icons of Finland. He demonstrates a wonderful ability to observe various facets of life from the perspective of someone who is seeing them for the first time. This is a book for anyone who has ever wondered what it's like to live in Finland. Topics include language, cultural differences, holidays, music, sport, food, and the people, places and things that make them all possible. This is also a book for any Finn who ever wondered how the world sees them, their country and their culture.
