Too Short Skirt - Tales from the Kitchen (2011)

← Back to Too Short Skirt - Tales from the Kitchen

Reviews

  • Sofi Oksanen presents a strong introduction to the discussion about misogyny and violence. /.../ Sofi Oksanen's latest work Too Short Skirt - Tales from the Kitchen, and the double CD with the same name based on Maija Kaunismaa's compositions, certainly pinpoint a current topic. A woman's body is anything but a private matter, not to mention a woman's honour. Her shame, on the other hand, she very often has to bear alone. /.../ Sofi Oksanen's sharp pencil touches many sore spots.
    — Helsingin Sanomat (Finland)
  • Oksanen's lyrics deal with the hidden and the open violence that women have to encounter in the private and the public spheres. One may be just as frightened in one's own kitchen as out on the dark streets. /.../ As a feminist political author, Oksanen takes a strong stand.
    — Turun Sanomat (Finland)
  • As a prosaist, storyteller, and an atmosphere creator, Oksanen is unique, beyond comparison.
    — Rumba (Finland)
  • Wonderful, Sofi! It is really great that the internationally acclaimed author Sofi Oksanen has taken the famous "bull by the horns" with her book Too Short Skirt - Tales from the Kitchen, and that she also does a tremendous charity project around Finland to prevent this tragical family violence.
    — Iltalehti (Finland)
  • Sofi Oksanen has written an impressive collection of lyrics about violence against women, and the indifference towards it.
    — Me Naiset (Finland)
  • The contrasts are striking when Oksanen's realistically stunted and intentionally rough lyrics are combined with Kaunismaa's nostalgic tunes and ballad-like beautiful singing. … Oksanen writes skilfully: the short descriptions and details reveal agonisingly vivid and tangible scenes, windows to entire life stories and tragedies.
