Searching for Satu

by Admin on December 30, 2018 in

In Alan Brunstrom’s new novel, Searching for Satu, Ricky’s mother, Satu, always refused to discuss the trauma that drew a veil across her early life. His search for her past leads him back to their Finnish homeland, which he finds in the throes of a joyful, collective madness as the last of the winter ice melts beneath a sun that never sets. Yet as he uncovers his origins, Ricky finds that the midsummer dream conceals a nightmare; and the price of discovering his mother’s secrets is to confront a dilemma that nobody should ever have to face.
