Come to Me

Come to Me

by Karlis Verdinš

Bilingual English / Latvian edition

Translated & introduced by Ieva Lesinska

Part of our Arc Translations series edited by Jean Boase-Beier

A modern sensibility suffused with urban sophistication. In everyday scenes he shows us what's most noble in human relationships, alongside the basest fears and anxieties. Irony and sarcasm somehow never seem to obscure the warmth of Kārlis's voice and his attention to intimate details. This book represents Kārlis at the peak of his poetic power: gripping, vivid and not a little romantic. Kārlis himself says: "I try to say something that I would like to present as beautiful or, on the contrary, something that can not and must not be taken as beautiful."
