The world expands through the works both in London and on a fishing trip in Lapland.

In summer A British series that has come to Netflix I May Destroy You tells of Arabella, who is writing her second book, who is young, cool and a little wild, and gets intoxicated and raped at the bar. The trauma caused by the event affects a lifetime. Screenwriter, actor Michaela Coelin a series based on my own experiences revolves around Arabella’s rape, but raises a lot of other issues of sexual consent: for example, is rape if a man takes a condom off during intercourse? The answer is, of course, yes. Stylish and despite its theme, the warm, sometimes even funny series comes to mind updated to the 2020s Single life: in it, women were liberated to want sex, but now it is such an old thing that one can think about what makes the pursuit of carnivore liberated, which in turn is exploitation.

The series is about a truly multicultural London, where skin color does matter, of course, but not necessarily in the first ways that come to mind. It is also wide-ranging for Finns to look at.

Now he left the beach like a pike: Juhani Karilan Small pike fishing was an excellent listening experience. Anna Saksman even the laconic reading fits wonderfully into the wild story of the book and the replicas written on top of h in Lapland.

The protagonist of the book, Elina, has to fish for a small pike from the Eastern Lapland salt every summer because of the curse, otherwise the pike will dive into the world of the dead and take Elina with them. Trapping has been successful for many years, but this time the pond is greeted by a herd of mosquitoes and pairs, and Elina is being chased by the police. The book is like a good detective story where you can get excited about future events, but at the same time take a stand on the effects of climate change and develop your own colorful, magical folk tradition in Lapland, which is so dangerous in the midst of noises, peonies, striped feet and other creatures.
