When it was first published, this book became incredibly successful because of frank discussion of sexuality, but it also drew a lot of criticism for the same reason. Even though this series of portraits about different young women discussed how the changes Estonia was undergoing were impacting young people, this aspect of the book went almost unnoticed.
When she heard about the sequel, one of my good colleagues listed all the things that could have happened to the characters from the first book: they could be divorced and struggling with getting alimony, they could have married abroad and come back, some may have reached the top and remained lonely in their personal life, some may have died … But, actually, that’s exactly the way it is. A person can’t be more creative than the Creator himself.
