Lietuvos rytas - Lithuania | 20/02/2008

The poor quality of Lithuania's book market

Journalist Vilis Normanas has experimented with translating a few pages from prize-winning foreign novels and sending them to Lithuanian publishers – he received only rejections. "Why did I do it? Let me explain. Because for a long time now, no books have been published in Lithuania without the promise of profit, that means no important books intended for an intellectual public. Instead, we find a whole array of romances, crime novels and other entertainment literature. I don't deny that publishers must survive somehow, but they're really not doing badly at the moment. Many confirm that sales are up. The real question, however, is whether anyone at all in Lithuania really wants to read good literature."
