Dan Sociu reads from the New Anthology THE WALL IN MY HEAD

Words without Borders presents an exciting anthology published by Open Letter Books, combining work from the generation of writers and artists who witnessed the fall of the Iron Curtain firsthand, with impressions and reflections of those who grew up in its wake.

Highlights within include seminal excerpts from the work of Milan Kundera, Peter Schneider, Ryszard Kapuściński, Vladimir Sorokin and Victor Pelevin and new work from Péter Esterházy, Andrzej Stasiuk, Muharem Bazdulj, Maxim Trudolubov, Dorota Masłowska, Uwe Tellkamp, Dan Sociu, David Zábranský, Christhard Läpple, and a host of others.

This book launch event will feature readings by young acclaimed Romanian poet and novelist Dan Sociu; German writer, documentarian, and best-selling author Kathrin Aehnlich; and Polish prize-winning author and acclaimed playwright Dorota Maslowska, moderated by Eliot Borenstein, chair of the Department of Russian and Slavic Studies at New York University.

The event is organized by Words Without Borders, in partnership with Open Letter Books, the Polish Cultural Institute in New York, the Romanian Cultural Institute in New York, the German Book Office, the Goethe-Institut New York and Idlewild Books.

By joining our mailing list we will keep you up to date with the Institute's latest cultural events.
