Juhani Ihanukselta on äskettäin julkaistu Liettuassa aforismikirja On the Edge. Englanninkielisen teoksen pohjana on hänen vuonna 2013 ilmestynyt aforismikokoelma Reunalla. Pieniä muutoksia alkuperäistekstiin sisältävä käännöstyö on myöskin tekijän omaa käsialaa.

Kirjan esittelyteksti ja tilausohjeet:

Juhani Ihanus published his collection of aphorisms Reunalla first in Finnish (Helsinki: Impressio, 2013) and rewrote it in English as On the Edge that was published in Lithuania, in the Republic of  Uzhupis (Vilnius: Zarzecze, 2015, 124 pages, ISBN 978-609-95621-3-1, softcover). Ihanus’ aphorisms are located and dislocated amid programmed brains and research results, blowing onto the futurological plans, and dosing striking diagnoses with all the trimmings. The basic trust on the kisses (”No kiss is vain knowledge”) guides the reader’s mind onto the brink of the ineffable.  

On the Edge can be ordered as the garland of words slithering into your retreats of silence. The price is 14 euros, including the postage to your country. Send the orders straight to the author juhani.ihanus (a) helsinki.fi
