Andrejev & Milton
Created by M.A. Numminen and Markku Into
ANDREJEV & MILTON form the Finnish private detective agency in M.A. Numminen and Markku Into's parodic and self-parodic short novel of the same name.
More interesting than the book itself, perhaps, is the fact that Numminen and Into belonged to the late sixties underground movement. Nowadays, though, Numminen is a respected musician (he has recorded "Tractatus Logico-philosophicus" by Wittgenstein, for example) and Into is a well-known Finnish poet. Into continued writing about Milton in 2001. He has also translated Charles Bukowski's Pulp and works by Allen Ginsberg, Lawrence Ferlinghetti and Gregory Corso into Finnish.
