“Have you ever listened to a song and your mind’s eye is immediately filled with visuals? David Bowie’s classic space epic is one such song for me. Every lyric paints such a vivid picture that I figured ‘Oh hey, I guess I’ll make that into a children’s book!’ Yes, I talk like this. Although I haven’t heard from Mr. Bowie (yet), why wait to share the full book?”

“In the year 2012, historian Raimo Lappalainen wants to illustrate how life was 50 years earlier. He becomes obsessed with the fate of a 1970s nude model, Saara Turunen, and finds a perfect actress to reconstruct her life and death in front of a TV camera. Meanwhile, a strike at a nuclear plant is covered up by the media.” (IMDB)
“The setting is a Finland in which people communicate by view-phone, laze around on not-so-Finnish-modern, inflatable plastic furniture and take their meals from machines that, in friendly, gravelly voices, announce the calorie content of the items ordered.” (Vincent Canby, The New York Times, 1970)
