The Human Part
by Kari Hotakainen
(*)(*)(*)(*)( )(65)
An elderly woman agrees to sell her life to a blocked writer she meets at a book fair. She needs to talk - her husband has not spoken since a family tragedy some months ago. She claims that her grown-up children are doing well, but the writer imagines less salubrious lives for them, as the downturn of Finland's economic boom begins to bite. Perhaps he's on to something. The Human Part is pure laugh-out-loud satire, laying bare the absurdities of modern society in the most vicious and precise manner imaginable.
