The first book written in 1977 and the second one in 1991. Basically stories about a bunch of old men and some younger ones who go for unexpected adventures. Unexpected as much for the characters as for the reader. They meet mostly by coincidence, some are relatives, and then they drink together, take saunas and talk about the problems afflicting the world. Of course, they also solve them all. 🙂
Who would have thought that a bunch of rather uninteresting men, at first glance, would be so interesting at the end of it all?
Well, that’s what Mr. Paasilinna can do. Make everything hillariously interesting.
