Pohoda Festival

May 24, 2011

Super-excited about Kali inviting me to read at the fantastic Pohoda festival in July.

The musical line-up is great – I am especially looking forward to singing along with Micachu – and so is the literary one. Another female Slovak writer, and a friend, Zuska Kepplova will be reading from her forthcoming book at the Lit Tent as well and if things works out, we might even have our own private musical guest (if things don’t work out, you should still check her out here).

Hope to see everybody in Trencin in July!
More specific time/date to be announced.

Not for Tourists

February 1, 2011

I’m risking to become the subject of one of this week’s TNY cartoons in which a lawyer tells his client, a prisoner, that if it’s any help, his sentence was the most e-mailed story of the week, but here I go.

Bushwick Daily is a lovely blog written (and photographed) by the lovely Katarina, a girl in love with her step-neighborhood and its inhabitants. For a healthy dose of that less polished/more daring yet already hip Brooklyn, all you need to do is check out her website. She’ll let you know where to get a great espresso, what local bands to follow and which exhibitions to see. Even better: she’ll get you acquainted with Bushwick residents, the young crowd that decided for Bushwick not only because it’s cheaper but because it rocks, because they believe the energy of the place has not yet become jaded.

Both Katarina and I (and probably most of the people featured on her blog) are newcomers to New York, immigrants. And some of us, before we really allow the kick of the city to overthrow the fear, we armor ourselves with that – to a certain point – faked jadedness. An older story of mine, Immigrante Nouveau, is precisely about that. It came out a couple of years ago on a beloved Slovak zine that, meanwhile, had vanished.
It is now posted on Bushwick Daily as Sunday Read, a category open for submissions from y’all!
And to conclude with my small-prisoner’s glory, it got retweeted by the Not For Tourists Guide. (I know, I know, but they do have a massive following and it makes me feel a little warmer inside).

Mini Interview with Nicole Krauss

November 29, 2010

I was interviewing Nicole Krauss at the end of September 2010, as the publishing house (and independent bookstore chain) Artforum was getting ready to come out with the first ever Slovak translation of her novel The History of Love.
The interview which I enjoyed doing immensely was featured in the weekly .tyzden.
Those of you who speak Slovak can read it here.

And voilà!, a short bit that I was allowed to film in which Ms. Krauss talks about her literary influences.
