For bibliophiles in the UK Latvian writer Pauls Bankovskis will be one of three writers taking part in a discussion at the Durham Book Festival. Bankovskis is an award-winning Latvian writer, whose work ranges from Latvian history to the realities of its recent Soviet past, and the possibilities for the future. His latest novel, published to general acclaim, is 18.
A day later Latvian writers Dace Rukšāne and Svens Kuzmins appear at the Manchester Literature Festival, also in the UK to talk about The Book of Riga, published by Manchester’s Comma Press, which chronicle Riga’s growth and on-going transformation, and offer glimpses into the dark humour, rich history, contrasting perspectives, and love of the mythic, that sets the city’s artistic community apart.
