Tiina Raevaara Wins the Runeberg Award

The Runeberg  literary award was given yesterday to Tiina Raevaara for her short story collection En tunne sinua vierelläni (“I don’t feel you beside me”). The stories play with reality, their world closely esembling ours but the strange events take on a dreamlike logic.

The Runeberg award is worth 10 000 € and is given by the Uusimaa newspaper, the City of Porvoo, the Finnish writers association, the Finnish critics association and the Finland-Swedish writers association.

Congratulations, Tiina!
