A brief overview of Jüri Ehlvest

by Aare Pilv

Jüri Ehlvest is one of the most original Estonian prose authors of the 1990s, and also most difficult to interpret. The critics have been intwo minds, calling Ehlvest’s work either medium-level absurd prose or a starting point of a new era of prose. Ehlvest’s short stories began appearing as early as the second half of the 1980s; his first book was published in 1996. >>
