Please join us and translator Benjamin Paloff for some of the most amazing Czech prose you have ever heard, along with drinks for all! Richard Weiner is one of European literature’s best-kept secrets. Often compared to both Robert Walser and Kafka, Weiner was a modernist who wrote with the Surrealists, and he did most of his writing in between World War I and World War II in Paris. PEN America has called The Game for Real " one of the most powerful works of Czech Modernist literature,” and it has lauded Paloff’s translation as “masterful.”
