A book about fear and hope. A book about anxiety and salvation. A book about pain and poverty. The novel by Alvydas Šlepikas, “My Name Is Mary,” has been characterised in many different ways and has become one of the most widely-read Lithuanian books of recent years. Inspired by true events, the author tells a story of “wolf children.” The eponymous Mary is one of them.
