Time Travel

What are the legends and myths of a community’s earliest encounters with outsiders—of different races and faiths—and what do these divisions look like in the distant future when nations have broken apart once again? This is the territory of Rwandan writer Scholastique Mukasonga, author of Kibogo (translated by Mark Polizzotti), and Russian writer-in-exile Vladimir Sorokin, author of Telluria (translated by Max Lawton)—two vastly different writers who nevertheless provide timely and powerful perspectives on our world, its past, present and future. Moderated by Publisher Weekly’s fiction editor, David Varno.
