Troll: A Love Story by Johanna Sinisalo
We don’t have trolls in our world (if we did, we’d be parodying Donald Trump), but this fantastical novel by Johanna Sinisalo, translated from the original Finnish by Herbert Lomas, is a touching tale of society’s outcasts and fringe citizens who find comfort in each other.
Prepare to have your heartstrings yanked as Angel rescues a troll cub from a group of drunk teenagers, without realizing just what impact this little guy might have on him and his life. What is the difference between human and animal? Perhaps Angel and his troll will find out.
