Tatyana Tolstaya: Aetherial Worlds
Reem-Kayden Center Laszlo Z. Bito '60 Auditorium
6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Russia's preeminent novelist, essayist, short story writer, and public intellectual, Tatyana Tolstaya has been compared to Chekhov and Nabokov. In her new book, Aetherial Worlds (Knopf, 2018), she blends love, dreams, memories, and myths with grim sarcasm, deadpan humor, and hilarious specificity that not only documents contemporary Russia's everyday life but also makes the metaphysical realms beyond here and now both tangible and surreal.
