The Easiest Launch - May 21st

Come and celebrate the launch of The Easiest by Rasa Askinyte.

Hosted at the wonderful OneBC fashion store located in Sneinton Market, with great live music from Ventiduo, with bar, short talk, readings and activities including the chance to recreate the cover and dwell on your past lives.

The Easiest is the seond novel from hip Lithuanian writer, Rasa Askinyte. It is the story of Blanca who works at Café France. If she actually exists. There she meets the characters of the novel, Alex and Not-Alex, Greek, the owner of the café and Anastasia her best friend. It is a story of love, of not loving and of an apartment reached only by a ladder and birds that come crashing down onto table tops.

Askinyte’s novel is lightly and lyrically told, but beneath the surface bubbles a dark and disturbing world.

‘I like to dream that someone’s chasing me. I run as fast as I can, so he can’t catch me, but still I can’t escape. Sometimes the shadow extends his arm and touches my back. My whole body quivers to his touch and I hear a quiet, calm music.’
