Sofi’s Recent Updates

“She found it hard to believe that there would be any bold moves, because too many people had dirty flour in their bags, and people with filthy fingers are hardly enthusiastic about digging up the past.”
Sofi Oksanen, Puhdistus

“- No haluatko sä ylipäätään tehdä mitään?
- Enpä kai.
- Kai sä haluat käydä jossain, nähdä ihmisiä?
- Emmä oikeestaan. Ei mulla ole kenellekään mitään asiaa. Ei oo mitään puhuttavaa kenellekään. Mitään puhuttavaa ei ole, kun ei näe ketään, tee mitään, käy missään.
- Pitäiskö sit käydä jossain ja tehdä jotain?
- Miks?
- No että olis jotain puhuttavaa.
- Mut emmä tiedä, haluanko mä puhua kenenkään kanssa. Miks mä puhuisin?”
Sofi Oksanen, Baby Jane

“Madre patria, contigo estoy triste, sin ti lo estoy más.”
Sofi Oksanen, Puhdistus
