Miki Liukkonen, born in 1989, is a Finnish novelist, poet and musician. His literary career began at the age of only 21 with the publication of his first collection of poetry White Poems (2011). This was followed in 2012 by the publication of his collection Elisabet, dedicated to his mother. Liukkonen chooses poetry as a channel of expression because of its sensitivity.When poems were no longer sufficient to express his thoughts, Miki Liukkonen turned to prose. Her first novel, Children Under the Sun, published in 2013, was nominated for the Runeberg Prize. After four years of writing, he published O, an unusual project. With this enigmatic tale, he compares his own work to that of David Lynch, succeeding in commercializing the non-commercial. The novel was selected for the 2017 Finlandia Prize for Fiction and the 2018 Runeberg Prize. Today, his experimental and daring writing has earned him a reputation as one of the most innovative contemporary writers.
