I am very very charmed. I´ve read two of Andrei Makïne´s novels, Le Testament français and just finished reading Au temps du fleuve Amour. I´m craving for more. Library, here I come! In the autumn I payed a visit to the annual Helsinki bookfair. Andrei Makïne was a guest at the fair. I saw him far away on a stage, I think he spoke in french. I didn´t stay. Later when I was about to leave I bumped into my friends mother at the fair, she had come just to listen to him. I had not read any of his books. Now I´m considering learning to use a samovar. Seriosly. But first I need to find one!
