The Book of Riga

Edited by Becca Parkinson

Riga is not just the capital of Latvia, but the largest city in the Baltic region. This rare showcase of its literature presents new insights and introductions to the city’s little-known history and culture for English-reading audiences – in another instalment of Comma’s popular ‘Reading the City’ series.

Riga today is a cultural melting pot, situated at a crossroads between Northern and Eastern Europe, it offers new perspectives on Europe, as well as on East-West relations. Now, over two decades into its independence, it is fast becoming one of Europe’s most popular destinations – for tourists and creatives alike. Yet, for all its youth and vibrancy, its history is never far from its residents’ minds.
