Sofi Oksanen is the international bestselling author of Purge and When the Doves Disappeared, which are set during the Soviet occupation of Estonia. She frequently speaks and writes about the dangers of the distortion and falsification of history and the need to preserve it. Her latest book, Norma, is a spellbinding new novel set in present-day Helsinki about a young woman with a fantastical secret who is trying to solve the mystery of her mother's death.
