About this product
- DescriptionWinner of the 1993 Baltic Assembly Prize An immediate sensation upon its 1993 publication in Europe, already translated into more than a dozen languages, <i>Border State</i> is a brilliantly realized account of a man in the grip of Western excess, emotionally crippled by a world that is subsuming his own and inhabiting a West in which all countries have become imaginary deserts of ruins where crowds of mads roam from one attraction to the other. His tale, in which disillusion and murder become inextricably linked, is a compelling exploration of scarcity, longing, and madness.
- Author BiographyTonu Onnepalu was born in 1962 in Tallinn, Estonia. He originally published <i>Border State</i> under the pen name Emil Tode. In 1993 <i>Border State</i> received the Baltic Assembly Prize, the most prestigious literary award in the Baltic countries. The novel has since been translated into a dozen languages. Onnepalu lives in Tallinn and on the Estonian island of Hiiumaa. Madli Puhvel divides her time between Estonia and California. She is the author of <i>Symbol of Dawn</i>, a biography of nineteenth-century Estonian poet Lydia Koidula.
