Mika Waltari -society

Welcome!

 

The Mika Waltari Society was founded in 2000 to promote knowledge of one of the best-known Finnish authors. His varied production covers nearly all literature genres and, year after year, his book (Sinuhe) is selected as the best and most important Finnish novel. He is one of our most translated authors: his books have been widely translated ever since the publication of his breakthrough novel (The Great Illusion) in 1929 and new translations have been regularly published up until this century. The Mika Waltari Society publishes a biennial yearbook; thus far (2010) four yearbooks have been published. They include older, less known texts as well as new information on the author's life.
