About this author

Andrus Kivirähk is an Estonian journalist, playwright and novelist. His writing style can be called self-mocking and sarcastic in a dark humour sauce. His best known work "Rehepapp ehk November", a.k.a. "Rehepapp", has been translated to Finnish and Norwegian. This, as well as his other history-themed works such as "Ivan Orava mälestused" and "Kalevipoeg" resonated strongly in the contemporary Estonian society.

Kivirähk is also one of the authors of the children's book (and the sequels, and wrote the screenplay for the animation based on) "Leiutajateküla Lotte"

Andrus Kivirähk is an active journalist, is married and has 3 children.

“Aga jah, Juku, selles on sul õigus küll, et eks see lugemine ole tõesti üks harjumus, sihuke harjumus, mis jääb külge ja pärast enam lahti ei saa, täpselt nagu suitsetamine. Aga suitsetamine on paha harjumus, lugemine on hea. Lugemise harjumus ei tee tervisele midagi. Suitsu sa teed?”
Andrus Kivirähk, Maailma otsas. Pildikesi heade inimeste elust
