Ludmila Ulitskaya

“A book can be an inspiration or a murder weapon. Ulitskaya is fascinated by these transformations, but even more so by the peculiar trajectories that create fate—the travels of a person, a picture, a book. If there is a strange journey to be traced, she cannot resist the retelling.” (Masha Gessen)

Ludmila Ulitskaya is an internationally acclaimed modern Russian novelist and short-story writer. Her works include Sonechka (1993), Medea and her Children (1996), The Funeral Party (1997), The Kukotsky Enigma (winner of the Russian Booker Prize, 2001), Daniel Stein, Interpreter (2006) and The Big Green Tent (2011). In 2014, she was awarded the Austrian State Prize for European Literature for her oeuvre.

Her talk, where you will hear this award-winning author speak on contemporary Russian literature and her own work, is organised by the Princess Dashkova Centre and the Moscow Institute of Translation.
