"An unusual story about a gifted but doomed young artist that grows in poignancy as it accelerates towards its tragic end."
Michael Peppiatt, author of Francis Bacon in Your Blood and In Giacometti’s Studio
“Jarre unfolds the collective history, trauma, and (post)memory of the Holocaust in Latvia . . . Return to Latvia is at the same time a novel, an autobiography, a memoir, a travelogue, an essay, and a writer’s diary. It even resembles a detective story.”
