Novel "Smoulder", 1977, by Writer Regīna Ezera (1930–2002)

Regīna Ezera (real name Regīna Kindzule, née Šamreto) wrote 28 books of novels and stories. Perceived as a first-rate, but nevertheless very traditional writer throughout most of her career, Ezera’s mature works expanded the boundaries of the prevailing psychological realism genre, paving the way for a new generation of writers who delved headfirst into the undercurrents of language and the human soul.
