More From Bezmozgis

The Toronto-based David Bezmozgis' remarkable collection of short stories, Natasha, dealt with the predicament of Latvian immigrants in Canada, and won him praise from critics and writers such as James Wood and Jeffrey Eugenides. Here's a recent profile, in which the author shares his admiration for Isaac Babel ("He does more in a sentence than most novelists do in an entire novel") and talks of his new work, a novel that will “take place in a different time and a different place....Put it this way, it will have more Latvia in it.”
