Fiction

One quirk of fate can send life spiralling in the most unexpected direction...

Things that Fall from the Sky is a stunning narrative that explores the unexpected and inexplicable nature of reality.

Three lives are changed forever by a series of random events: a young girl loses her mother when a block of ice falls from the sky; a woman wins the jackpot twice; and a man is struck by lightning four times. Selja Ahava weaves together these unique stories in a charming, one-of-a-kind tale about just how far people will go to force life into a logical pattern they can make sense of.

Things that Fall from the Sky is a story of everyday life. But it is also a meditation on the passing of time, the endurance of love and the pain of loss. This prize-winning novel by one of Finland's best-loved writers is now touching readers' hearts all over the world, painting an unforgettable picture of the unforeseen twists and turns that can define a lifetime.
