London Book Fair Voices: Nora Ikstena

The Baltic states are center stage at the London Book Fair taking place in the English capital April 10-12. As well as the trade fair itself, a wide program of linked events at various locations are promoting Latvian culture and business. LSM editor Mike Collier will bring you a series of audio reports from participants and visitors.

    Nora Ikstena has been one of Latvia's best-known writers, both at home and abroad, for several years. But this year, the publication of her novella Soviet Milk in English from Pereine Press has enabled her to reach a far wider audience.

    At the London Book Fair, she is one of the featured writers from the Baltic states, and as she tells LSM, all the extra attention she is receiving does not give her any cause for concern.
