In this special edition of ‘The Monocle Daily’, we look back at some of the year’s best ‘Meet the Writers’ interviews. Sofi Oksanen is a Finnish-Estonian novelist and playwright. Winner of the Finlandia prize and known as the greatest voice of her generation at home, Oksanen gained international recognition through ‘Purge’, a book that is also a play, a film and an opera. Her fifth novel, ‘Norma’, looks at the global exploitation of women told through the eyes of a girl with magical hair. Oksanen talks to Georgina Godwin about her latest book, as well as her journey so far.
