Twilight Zones of History (virtual)

The long arm of history reverberates through the fiction of three international stars—from internationally acclaimed Icelandic novelist, Sjón, who imagines how a young man turns to Nazi-inspired fascism in the 60s in his forthcoming novel, Red Milk (translated by Victoria Cribb); to Sheng Keyi, whose parable of Tienanmen Square’s official erasure, Death Fugue (translated by Shelley Bryant), is, ironically, banned in China; to Havana’s crime master, Leonardo Padura, whose new novel, The Transparency of Time (translated by Anna Kushner), travels through time to solve the mystery of a missing Black Madonna statue. Moderated by Eric Banks, Director of the New York Institute for the Humanities.
