In the third of a series of essays on seaside houses from literature, Anna Iltnere, founder of the Sea Library on Latvia’s Baltic shore, takes us to The Easternmost House Juliet Blaxland’s book of the same name. Next week, we will also publish a companion interview to this essay with Juliet herself.
“On a stormy night, sleeping at the Easternmost House is like sleeping in a boat.” – Juliet Blaxland, The Easternmost House, 2019
Read the essay on Elsewhere Journal.
