Susanna Alakoski’s authorship is permeated with class- and women’s perspectives. She constantly sides with the underdog, both children and adults. 

Susanna Alakoski depicts poverty and instability, but also weaves in the dreams that something better must be out there which drives people and societies forward.

Her latest books also gives us a history lesson – how women went from being dependent in a farming society to another dependance in a distinctive industrial society.”
