The finnish author Arto Paasilinna died last sunday (the 15th of october).

His books had me dreaming of Finland, of its nature, and maybe of a very special finnish way of being.
For those who don't know him, I really encourage you to read his stories. And re-read, for those who knew him already.

The one which touched me the most was "Jäniksen vuosi" ("The Year of the Hare" in english, and "Le lièvre de Vatanen" in my langage, french). After that read, Unrealworld's sessions might have a new taste

I also loved Arto Paasilinna's books.  The year of the Hare, ("L'anno della lepre", in italian) opened my mind and lightened my heart.
