Ričardas Gavelis

Author, Lithuania
Ričardas Gavelis (1950–2002) is the author of seven novels, three short story collections, and several plays. He graduated from the University of Vilnius with a degree in physics, a background that would find expression in his novels, not only in their obsession with time and space, but in their remarkably structured composition. Elizabeth Novickas translated his book Vilnius Poker (2009) for Open Letter Press. (Photo credit: photo courtesy of divus)
