It’s always difficult to rate short story collections because by their very nature, there are some stories that you like and some that you don’t. What I did like, though, is how each of these stories is very much a product of the city, and so it was cool because I could read about locations that I’ve visited.
The selection here is also pretty diverse and so we get a nice range of different styles. This is my fourth or fifth Latvian book by now, and I think it’s the best for getting just a good cross-section of what’s going on. Enjoy!
