Interview Svetlana Satsjkova

Svetlana Satsjkova will be interviewed this afternoon by Harry van den Bouwhuijsen about her novel People and Birds. Mmv Arie van der Ent. With subsequent signing.

This novel is a farewell to Moscow, a farewell to Russia. The writer, once part of the make believe world of glossy-glamour-glitter, left her hometown and homeland after the annexation of Crimea and the invasion of the Donbas. She looks back 'analytically', full of raw humor, on a person (a woman who stands up for society) and on a bird (a man who flees this society). She leaves out the 'scoundrel', or rather, he receives his just punishment in a short passage... And all in the context of a family history surrounding Tanja (twin sister of Liza) and Sasja (the lover of the mother of the twin sisters). Not a political book, and yet yes. It was a joy to translate...
