Center for Slavic and East European Studies: Reading and Talk with Anne O. Fisher


Thursday, September 14, 2017, 4:30PM - 6:00PM


Dr. Anne O. Fisher’s translation of Ksenia Buksha's novelThe Freedom Factory(awarded Russia’s 2014 National Bestseller prize) is forthcoming from Phoneme Media in March 2018. A postmodern reimagining of the Soviet production novel,The Freedom Factoryweaves together tales told by factory workers, managers, engineers and janitors to create the (lightly fictionalized) history of a real military plant in Leningrad/Saint Petersburg from the Nazi bombardment in WWII to the present day. Buksha deploys an array of challenging techniques to construct an insightful portrait of Soviet and post-Soviet life that is, appropriately, both hilarious and heartbreaking. Fisher will read from the novel, followed by a question and answer session about her translation and the work of translating literature in general.
