A Life of Crime? Crime Writing from Poland

13 March, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Polish writers Olga Tokarczuk and Zygmunt Miloszewski join us to discuss the permeable boundaries of genre fiction. Miloszewski is a writer who has made his name writing psychological thrillers like Rage and a Grain of Truth, but he has also experimented with other genres, including fantasy and thrillers. Tokarczuk is famous for her strange, introspective works of fiction, but her crime novel Drive Your Plough Over the Bones of the Dead has recently been made into a film by Agnieszka Holland. Together they will discuss genre fiction, its possibilities and limitations, and whether genre restrictions for writers are helpful or unhelpful.
