‘I want to throw a stone, hit my husband on the head – you never know what a crazy person will do next, and, anyway, they can’t be held accountable and you can’t take offence at their actions.’

Part of the Peter Owen World Series: Baltics. A contemporary Latvian classic and feminist One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Kristine Ulberga's The Green Crow is a novel about an institutionalized woman coming to terms with her lifelong hallucinations of a giant, garrulous green crow who appears at the most trying times of her life.

Institutionalized in an asylum, a woman with a record of hallucinations commits her life story to paper. She records, from the age of six, her earliest memories of a drunken and abusive father, the strange men her mother introduced to repair the family, the imaginary forest to which she would run for safety and, of course, the enormous talking green crow who appeared when she most needed him.The green crow is a conceited, boisterous creature who follows the novel's nameless protagonist throughout her life, until the day that the crow's presence begins to embarrass her. Confined to a tedious domestic life, she is desperate to hide the crow's very existence. Failing to do so, she winds up in a psychiatric hospital. Can she repress and renounce her acerbic, sharp-beaked daemon - or learn to love herself, bird and all?
