Writing after Fascism: Curzio Malaparte between Paris and Moscow
Wednesday, October 17, 2018

Pioneering autofiction with his WWII novels Kaputt (1944) and The Skin (1949), Italian writer Curzio Malaparte is one of most controversial authors of the 20th Century. Malaparte was a protagonist of interwar Europe, from his tumultuous relations with Mussolini and the fascist regime to the cosmopolitan dalliances with French and Russian intelligentsia. He narrated these experiences in the two memoirs The Kremlin Ball and Diary of a Stranger in Paris, for the first time translated into English respectively by Jenny McPhee and Stephen Twilley and now published by NYRB Classics. The two translators will discuss their experience with Malaparte's texts and their relationship with this fascinating yet problematic author.
