Friday April 1 will see the launch of a new anthology of Latvian short stories translated into English and published by British publishing house Comma Press. With stories by such stalwarts of the Latvian literary scene as Pauls Bankovskis, Sven Kuzmins and Dace Rukšane it should prove a popular addition to the suitcases of many future visitors to Rīga. Co-editor Becca Parkinson told LSM more about a project which started at last year's London Book Fair.
