Russian author Maria Stepanova presents In Memory of Memory (translated to English by Sasha Dugdale) in conversation with Heidi Reitmaier. Shortlisted for the 2021 International Booker Prize, among others, the documentary fiction – now available in English – offers an original perspective on living history through the eyes of a woman sifting through her late aunt’s apartment. With the faded photographs, old postcards, letters, diaries, and souvenirs she finds, she assembles a portrait of a life in Russia and the story of an ordinary Jewish family that survived a century of persecution and repression. Hear Stepanova speak about this acclaimed new work, and entertain a bold, new exploration of cultural and personal memory.
