79pp. New. Translated by Margita Gailitis. "Sun Stroke in the Dark, Mara Zalite’s first book published in English, offers a selection from her five published poetry collections. Zalite’s inspiration arises from the sun - both metaphorically and physically - all the more ironic since she herself was born in darkest Siberia, the child of parents deported during the Soviet occupation." (Atena) Once you have explored the world Mara Zalite creates – a world of earth and sun and myth, primitive, primordial even, at the same time alive and vibrant with the positive force of awakening and change – you will understand why she has earned a special place in contemporary Latvian literature.
