About the Event
Things that Fall from the Sky by Selja Ahava, 2021
WINNER OF THE 2016 EU PRIZE FOR LITERATURE One quirk of fate can send life spiralling in the most unexpected direction... A young girl loses her mother when a block of ice falls from the sky. A woman wins the jackpot twice. A man is struck by lightning four times. Coincidence? Or something more? Things That Fall from the Sky is the tale of three lives that are changed forever by random events. But it is also a meditation on the endurance of love, the passage of time and the pain of loss. Selja Ahava, one of Finland's best-loved novelists, weaves these stories together in an unforgettable, one-of-a-kind fable about the twists and turns that can define a lifetime.
