Aubrey (korrick) | 2004 comments Purge, Sofi Oksanen, translated from Finnish by Lola Rogers, 2008, Estonia (Finland), NOVEL

"The word purge speaks of both physical and political, bodily cleansing and cultural expulsion, as well as the forcible expunging of sin and impurities. That is the theme here, played out against the gigantic backdrop of history and the smaller curtains of men and their hate for women."

(Aubrey, review)
