Sisko Savonlahti

Sisko Savonlahti (b. 1982) is a writer and journalist from Helsinki, who is inspired by women such as Nora Ephron, Caitlin Moran, Amy Poehler, Jessi Klein and Cat Marnell. Her first novel Maybe This Summer Everything Will Change (2018) has been one of the dark horses of the year: a rollicking, emotional and gripping book that honestly captures the life of a woman in her thirties. It was nominated for Helsingin Sanomat Literature Prize.
