LBSW asks: Nora Ikstena… International Women’s Day Exclusive

In celebration of International Women’s Day we asked some of our LBSW celebrated women all about the Women behind or in the books that they love and that have inspired them!


“I would recommend Karen Blixen’s (Isec Dienesen) story ”Babaetas feest”. I think this is one of the most beautiful tales written by female author about passion to life, taste, love and duty.”

Nora Ikstena is one of the most influential and prominent prose writers and essayists in Latvia. She has written 30 literary works with her most recent novel, Soviet Milk, being shortlisted for an Annual Literature Award for best prose.

Nora Ikstena will be celebrated as part of our Market Focus Author of the Day programme at The London Book Fair 2018, on Wednesday 11 April.
