All things Scandinavian.

Lauri Anderson

Born October 27, 1942, in Dover-Foxcroft, ME; son of Arvid and Ruby Emma Anderson. Ethnicity: Finnish-American. "No one else seems to write stories about contemporary Finnish Americans, so I believe I am filling a gap. Another short story collection, Children of the Kalevala: Contemporary American Finns Relive the Timeless Tales of the Kalevala, comically and ironically compares the mythic giant figures of Finland's national epic to contemporary Finns in northern Michigan. In the Kalevala, Vainamoinen plucks his magical harp and plays his enemies into a swamp, while in northern Michigan a rock band is so loud that it kills a grandmother.
