Pasi Ilmari Jääskeläinen is Finland’s best kept literary secret…

In the early 70’s, when he was five, Pasi Ilmari Jääskeläinen lived in a block of flats by the Jyväskylä’s (a city in Central Finland) old cemetery and believed in vampires.

In the early 80’s he still had vampire dreams and fell in love with Jeanne Moreau in Truffaut’s Jules et Jim.

Ten years later Pasi wrote his first short stories. He wan the writing competition of SciFi and fantasy stories four times and then decided to become a writer.

Yes, the answers are pretty hard to find, and I'm afraid I did it deliberately, because I believe things are like that in real life, too: there are no easy answers, only questions - and tips to make your own theories.

However, I wrote this for those who want to solve the mystery of Laura White:

“Everybody knows that no healthy person would take up writing novels. Healthy people do healthy things. All this darned hoopla and hot air about literature—what is it really but mental derangement run through a printing press?”
Pasi Ilmari Jääskeläinen, The Rabbit Back Literature Society

“Everybody comes to the library naked. That's why they come here - to dress themselves in books.”
Pasi Ilmari Jääskeläinen, The Rabbit Back Literature Society

“Happiness, in other words, is a temporary glitch in evolution.”
