- »You cannot escape Vilnius«. This core sentence from Ricardas Gavelis’s best known novel, »Vilniaus pokeris«, published in 1989 and the cause of much controversy and discussion, could stand as a motto above the literary output of the Lithuanian narrative writer, dramatist and political and social commentator. Born in Vilnius in 1950 and where he still lives today, Gavelis studied physics and later became editor with the journal »Science and Life« until he began, on a freelance basis, to write stories, novels, dramas and screenplays. Since his first narrative work, »A Party that has not yet begun« (1976) he completed four collections of stories and six novels. He also worked as a journalist for the magazine »Respublika«.
