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 the latest installation 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.

Riga may be over 800 years old as a city, but its status as capital of an independent Latvia is only a century old. The stories gathered here chronicle this growth and on-going transformation, and offer glimpses into the dark humour, rich history and love of the mythic, that sets the city apart.
