9th Ave: Dubravka Ugresic

Tuesday, September 25, 2018 - 7:30pm

This event will be held at our 9th Ave. location.

 

 

 

Croatian writer Dubravka Ugresic discusses her new novels, Fox and American Fictionary.

 

Praise for Fox

 

"Ugresic is also affecting and eloquent, in part because within her quirky, aggressively sweet plot she achieves moments of profundity and evokes the stoicism innate in such moments."—Mary Gaitskill



"Never has a writer been more aware of how one narrative depends on another."—Joanna Walsh

 

"Dubravka Ugresic is the philosopher of evil and exile, and the storyteller of many shattered lives."—Charles Simic

 

About Fox

 

Fox is the story of literary footnotes and “minor” characters―unnoticed people propelled into timelessness through the biographies and novels of others. With Ugresic’s characteristic wit, Fox takes us from Russia to Japan, through Balkan minefields and American road trips, and from the 1920s to the present, as it explores the power of storytelling and literary invention, betrayal, and the randomness of human lives.
