Born in Tallin in 1970, he studied journalism at Tart University. He represents one of the most memorable individuals from the Estonian writing generation. He has won several literature prizes and his satirical prose was translated into several languages. He captured the hearts of many readers with his fiction books, children’s books and scripts for anime movies. In his satirical fiction Ďábelské časy strange creatures wander between the villagers of a small Estonian village. In the story, which spans over thirty days, the author manages with perfection to bring together Estonian folk tradition with a world of commonplace, daily reality. With thirty-two thousand sold copies Kivirähk became the most widely read Estonian author in 2000. Protagonists of the comedy Blue Carriage who grew up during the communist era come back to their youth through over a bottle of vodka at a birthday party. They plunge deep into nostalgic memories that abound with symbolism and recollections of communist socialism.
