Norma (TBA)

Sofi Oksanen is back with her highly anticipated new novel Norma, and it is a polished literary gem.

When her mother suddenly dies in a suspicious accident, Norma Ross is left with no one. The two have been constant companions throughout her life, tied together by blood as well as a great secret. Inside of Norma an extraordinary magic is at work, and it has both blessed and cursed her with supernaturally fast-growing hair, sensitive to the slightest change of mood. All of her life Norma and her mother Anita have struggled to keep this secret, and protect Norma from those who would consider her a freak. Now after Anita's death, photographs and videos in her home reveal that Norma’s mother knew far more about her daughter’s affliction than she let on. 

To find the answer to who is responsible for her mother’s death, Norma begins to work at the same salon as Anita did. But just as Norma has her motives for taking the job, so do her employer and the patriarch of the family running the salon have theirs for bringing her into the fold. Trapped in a net of deceit and paranoia, Norma must fight for her freedom – and for the truth. 

Sofi Oksanen’s Norma is a dark family drama with fantastical undertones. Oksanen is spellbinding as she elegantly weaves together the past with the present and introduces the compelling character Norma and her world.
