Celebrating Sigizmund Krzhizhanovsky with Read Russia

NYRB Classics is partnering with Read Russia to celebrate the publication of Sigizmund Krzhizhanovsky’s Autobiography of a Corpse at 2nd Floor on Clinton, a bar in the Lower East Side, NYC.

NYRB Classics editor Edwin Frank and book critic and translator Liesl Schillinger will be reading from and discussing Krzhizhanovsky’s fantastic and blackly comic philosophical fables, which have been compared to the works of Poe, Gogol and Beckett. Frozen under Soviet censorship for years, Krzhizhanovsky’s work was published for the first time in Russian in 1989, and is now being brought into English by NYRB Classics.
