General Note:
Originally published in Finnish by Gummerus Publishers as Taivaalta tippuvat asiat, 2015.
Summary, etc.:
One quirk of fate can send life spiralling in the most unexpected direction... Three lives are changed forever by a series of random events: a young girl loses her mother when a block of ice falls from the sky; a woman wins the jackpot twice; and a man is struck by lightning four times. Selja Ahava weaves together these unique stories in a charming, one-of-a-kind tale about just how far people will go to force life into a logical pattern they can make sense of. Things that Fall from the Sky is a story of everyday life. But it is also a meditation on the passing of time, the endurance of love and the pain of loss.
Language Note:
Translated from Finnish.
Subject: Life change events > Fiction.
