Charm Offensive
Charm Offensive
Music. Fashion. Food. Travel.

This is a selection of interviews and writing by Stuart Garlick. These were all published in either the current version of Charm Offensive, on the old site (, on ERR News, the English website of Estonian Public Broadcasting, in YU Magazine, on a website served by Agence France Presse, on The Baltic Times, or on Estonian World.

There were many more of these interviews, but owing to the taking-down of in November 2014 (we were promised until the end of the month to recover data, but the files would not download), I have lost a large number of the stories written at that time. If anyone has cached copies of these stories, I would be grateful if you could get in touch with me using the contact form.
