Antti Rönkä (b. 1996) studies literature and education theory at the University of Tampere. His first novel Off the Ground (2019) was awarded the Thank You for the Book Prize and longlisted for the prestigious Runeberg Prize. His second novel Nocturno 09:07 is an auto- fictive, sharp and striking story about a boy growing into a man, about sexual shame – and growing out of it.
