On 13th March, it was announced that Parthian had won the British Book Award for Small Press of the Year for the Wales region. It turned a good day at the London Book Fair into an excellent one.
‘I avoided becoming a writer for as long as I could’ Interview with Eeva Park, author of The Rules of Bird Hunting, part of the Parthian Baltic Series
Eeva Park is one of the authors featured in the new Parthian Baltic Series. Whilst she began her writing career as a poet, she is also well-known for her short-stories, novels and plays. The Rules of Bird Hunting is a lively, strongly autobiographical collection of poems, exploring changing values over the course of a lifetime, and features the author’s best work from the last three decades. Eeva Park tells us more about her writing, her influences and gives us some insight into the process of both translating and being translated.
The three Baltic states will be the market focus for the 2018 London Book Fair, just one part of a year-long programme to commemorate a century of independence for each country. This focus brings an opportunity to delve into the tangles of literary history, and to appreciate the contemporary cultural landscapes of these lesser-known countries.
