From prose to poetry
Karelian author Eeva Tikka has just celebrated her 70th birthday. In the space of 34 years she has published 27 books, including many novels, and has received a very large number of literary awards and nominations. In an interview for the North Karelian service of Finnish State Radio, she talks about her life and work. Although she plans to write no more novels and short stories, it's possible that readers may look forward to some new poems from her.
