Title: 30 Questions People Don’t Ask
Author: Inga Gaile
Page Count/Review Word Count: 98
I was lucky enough to go to the launch of this in Riga, Latvia. Gaile is one of the leading Latvian poets and her work here is translated by Ieva Lešinska, who used to live and work in the US. As both Latvian and English translations are included, you can contrast and compare, and the result is an exciting (and occasionally bleak) collection which investigates 21st century life for Latvia and its people. It’s wonderful.
