115pp. As New. Translated by Margita Gailitis. Edited by Vija Kostoff. "Nora Ikstena’s daring, charming, and often mischievous fiction opens up new paths not only for Latvian literature in English translation but for English literature itself." (Jeremy Davies) "A deceptive simplicity, a desire to make language burst into life, a care for the deep but none too reliable emotions that bind us - whether Nora Ikstena is describing a blossom-strewn porch in spring, a misunderstood daughter or an ingenuous prostitute’s inner world, her stories mine both sharp reality and storytelling gold from the overlooked ore of everyday." ( Julian Evans)
