Yoko Tawada and Tatyana Tolstaya

Introductions by Monique Truong and Anya Migdal

Yoko Tawada, beloved for Memoirs of a Polar Bear and The Bridegroom was a Dog, now publishes Emissary, a joyous novel of children and grandparents set in post-disaster Japan. “Her work might be compared to that of Bruno Schulz, Silvina Ocampo or Franz Kafka,” wrote Rivka Galchen. “Magnificent strangeness.” In a rare U.S. appearance, Tatyana Tolstaya reads from Aetherial Worlds, her new story collection. “She has a wholly distinctive voice, a quirky yet lyrical voice that blurs the line between poetry and prose, visionary magic and plain, old-fashioned description,” wrote Michiko Kakutani.
