November 13 2017

“A great deal of interest is being shown in Long Litt Woon’s The Way Through The Woods: Of Mushrooms and Mourning. It is a beautifully told book, featuring an unusual and original combination of themes.” said Per Øystein Roland in NORLA (Norwegian Literature Abroad) on the radio during Frankfurt Book Fair. This book is also one of NORLA’s selected titles this autumn. Last week this impressing book was sold to Nemo Kustannus in Finland, where mushroom picking is a highly serious matter.
