Ostrich is a-live

Jaanalind, kägu, kajakas

Great news everybody! My fourth novel “Ostrich, cuckoo, gull” was published by Vihmakass at the end of 2020. It is a 500 page novel about how we, normal people, perceive real historical events and how history doesn’t want to be perceived.

All the characters in the novel are made up, but they figure in real historical affairs. Such as the 1755 earthquake in Lisbon, red snow in Alps in 1806 or first parachute jump in Tallinn 1889. The story evolves during 250 years and covers Königsberg, Lisbon, Como and Tallinn and maybe more obscure places like King of Prussia in Pennsylvania.

“We shouldn’t take history too seriously, because sure as hell history doesn’t take us seriously.”
