We Latvians are a small nation beaten and battered by many wars over thousands of years but our culture and life sense still thrive the Latvian language is one of the oldest in existence today Perhaps that is our greatest source of pride then we are survivors When Pauls Toutonghi s new novel came upon the literary scene I was pleased I m an avid reader in both languages Latvian and English but however many good books I read about the war and later experiences of Latvians immigrating to other countries and cultures it is rare to come across a worthy tome in English a good attention grabbing novel that I could proudly share with non Latvian friends Now here s Pauls With one Latvian parent it is my understanding he has grown up in the Milwaukee area active in the Latvian community and having visited Latvia is well acuainted one would suppose with the culture and something of the nation s history For these reasons I read the novel with high expectation Pauls writing abilities do not disappoint He has accrued an impressive publishing history has won the Pushcart Prize His descriptions are lively his storyline pulls us along his sense of humor is intact And yet The further I read the I realized no this was not going to be the book that I would pass on to Latvians I know or to non Latvians I d like to invite into my multi cultural world The novel works as an entertaining read for non Latvians perhaps but for those who do know the history and culture well not so much I think my sense of humor is healthy but I can t help feeling that describing Latvians visiting the United States as being so dense as to put ketchup on every possible food even bananas craving to taste the American life is taking the joke into the much less fun realm of ridicule Or the Latvian mother as so lacking in self awareness as to walk Milwaukee streets wearing a Pabst hardhat with a beer can on it as if wearing a Parisian fashion statement Humor is often built on slapstick and exaggeration but would those who have no other knowledge of Latvians perhaps never will have any other exposure than this novel think this is what it means to be a Latvian Bumbling fools Worthy of remark are some historic inaccuracies Although this is a fictional work even fiction must be rooted on factually solid ground One such example is the allusion to Latvia s president Karlis Ulmanis and his attempt to escape to Finland during the Soviet invasion of World War II In fact President Ulmanis held his place broadcasting over the radio waves to the nation even as the Soviet tanks crossed the Russian border reuesting all to remain in their places saving many Latvian lives He was taken by force from his office by the occupying army and was never seen alive again Educated guesses are that he was deported to Siberia where he died in a Gulag If by 1989 when this story is set most Latvian immigrants had established themselves in relative financial security the fictional Balodis family still lived in sualor had attained some measure of their new country s education and achieved something of their own immigrant American dream then the Balodis family was certainly the exception to the rule Nor could I imagine a Latvian father being so easygoing about the political lines the young man in this novel Yuri Juris crossed in his lovelorn relationship with a socialist girl the typical Latvian father would have gone through the roof As a reality check I shared Red Weather with my parents who shared it with several of their friends They expressed admiration for the author s skill but expressed a pained disappointment in the skewed image of Latvian immigrants The image the book leaves is of a people who are gullible not particularly industrious and rather dim witted An opportunity
