Finnish author Meritta Koivisto was interviewed by Mirva Lempiainen about her book “The London Lover” and about the writing process. The book has been a success in Finland and its first edition has sold out. It has been translated into several languages, and there is a film script prepared in English. Actor Tuomas Hiltunen read excerpts from it to a small but delighted audience of Finns and others in the Salmagundi Club parlor. One copy in Finnish is available for loan from the library of the New York Finnish Lutheran Congregation at 83 Chistopher St., New York , NY 10014, tel. 646 638 4195, www.finnchurch.org (library card $10)
