When I Forgot, Elina Hirvonen (translated by Douglas Robinson)

Published May 2009 by  Tin House Books

ISBN: 9780980243659

The Recommend:

A first novel, quiet, raw and smart, published by a great small press.

Manic depression, 9/11, bitter cold and broken hearts — just perfect for the holidays!

Best consumed in one sitting, with a little Townes van Zandt on the stereo.

(And plenty of rum and nog, of course.)
