Novelists Sergio De La Pava (A Naked Singularity and Personae) and David Gordon (Mystery Girl and The Serialist) join Russian lit scholar Michael Kunichika to talk about Russian writers who, though they left us long ago, remain potent presences for readers and writers today. From Dostoevsky and Tolstoy to Vasily Grossman and Sigizmund Krzhizhanovsky, we’ll learn about obsession, madness, realism, fables, and more, in an event with all the drama and pathos (well, at least some of the drama and pathos) of the great Russian novels themselves.
